The catcher hit six home runs while batting .443 in 2012, helping lead the Sandites to 30 wins, believed to be a school record. He has signed to play college baseball at Eastern State College.
Are the six homers the most you've hit in a season?
In high school, yes.
Any particular reason for the power increase?
I switched to a wooden bat all season and felt more comfortable with that.
Do you remember the first homer you ever hit?
Probably not. It was probably in T-ball.
What made you want to be a catcher?
My dad and brothers were catchers, so I kind of fell into catching and I loved it. I've played it since I was 4 years old. It's the only position I've ever played.
How did you feel when the All-State selections came out?
I was excited to see my name on there. It's a big honor. I was pretty happy.
You went out with a good group of seniors.
We did pretty good this year. We've played together since we were little kids, so we bonded together pretty good this year.
