Growing up in Denver, Colorado I was a four year letterman at Cherokee Trail High School. We went on to capture our school's first State Championship my sophomore year, in which I was the starting pitcher.
After high school I attended Central Arizona College. I was a part of a very talented lineup that advanced to the Junior College World Series in 2011. I was given the start on the mound for the National Championship game in front of a crowd of 15,000+.
I was fortunate enough to get picked up by the Houston Astros in the 2011 MLB Draft where I spent three years in their organization.
What are some of your greatest accomplishments?
There are three accomplishments and championships that stand out the most to me. First was being the starting pitcher in the 2007 Colorado State Championship.
Second was being the starting pitcher in the 2011 Junior College National Championship.
Lastly, we were able to capture the Low A World Series title in 2013 with the Houston Astros.
How do you want to inspire future players?
I want to provide young players with knowledge from the top of the ladder. I want to share with them everything I learned throughout my career that I didn't know at their age.
