My baseball career started when I was 8 when I first watched my older brother play with his little league team.
After watching that first game, I was hooked and have been since that very day. I played High School ball at Alta Loma High School from Freshman to Junior year and I transferred to Etiwanda High school for my senior year. I was lucky in high school to be apart of great programs.
All 3 years at Alta Loma we went to the CIF Playoffs and competed in our league. At Etiwanda, I helped contribute to a winning season and the first time in 13 years that we had gone to the playoffs and make it to the CIF Championship game as well.
After high school, I continued to play at Orange Coast College for 2 years and was blessed again to play for an amazing coaching staff lead by John Altobelli and play in 2 state championships where we won 1 and lost 1.
After OCC, I transferred to Hope International and was apart of a legendary team whereas a second-year program, we won our conference, won the regional tournament, and made it to the NAIA World Series. We made history and to be apart of something like that is special for anyone to experience.
I also grew up with 2 brothers and we are all very passionate about the game and it showed. My brothers both played professionally as pitchers. Both played for the Angels minor league organizations and 1 is still playing professionally to this day. I had an incredible career playing this game and with everything I’ve learned from it, it feels as if it’s my duty to give back to the players who are also trying to have the same experience and more in their life and career. It’s all about the kids at the end of the day.
