    Why I came to the Academy: "I felt that it would be a great chance to be the one of the best, and to do things that very few people got the opportunity to do. At first, I was unsure about my choice, but I quickly changed my mind once the year started. "

    My plans for the future: "With aspirations headed towards major league baseball since a young age, I would not be disappointed if the Lord had another job for me, such as flying, or engineering of some sort. I already feel like the Academy has been preparing me to lead all of those around me in the right direction."
