My Dream Goal
My dreams are to be as successful as possible in my high school career which will allow for the opportunity to play at a D1 college and maybe beyond. I also would like to expand giving back to youth in different communities. I would like to someday have a charity that helps athletes with medical needs like myself have success in their sport.

What sets me apart from other athletes is my drive to succeed despite the medical challenges I have faced, and the fact that I don't take a day being healthy for granted. I have Celiac Disease, Reactive Hypoglycemia, Eosinophilic Esophagitus, Multiple Major Food Allergies with Epi Pen, Minor Heart Issue , Asthma and other medical issues that stem from my diseases. I take a lot of medications each day to stay healthy and allow me to eat normal food. Most kids with my diseases are on feeding tubes. I travel with all my food and can not eat out at most restaurants. I am allergic to common foods like corn and potato along with many other foods. I have learned with extreme discipline, drive for success, and extreme hard work that nothing can stand in the way of success. In dealing with my diseases and illnesses over the years, I have learned... It’s not what knocks you down that matters, it’s how you rise up and respond that matters. “Strength doesn’t come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardship and decide not to surrender that is real strength.”- Gandhi I will never let my diseases or illness define me. I am always grateful for another day to play this game.
