Why I came to the Academy: "I came to the Academy because I wanted the opportunity to play college baseball at the Division I level. I came because I wanted to do something that was harder than anything my friends were going to do, and because I knew I would have a guaranteed job if I made it through. I came because I knew I wouldn't be happy with my life if I just sat behind a desk and worked a regular 9-5 like most people in this country. I wanted to do something worthwhile, and I wanted to have stories to tell for the rest of my life."
