Getting to Know John

What is your major and why did you choose it?

I am a Business Management major.

 

Why did you choose JMU?

I chose JMU primarily because I feel I can come right out and contribute as a freshman.  Another reason I chose JMU is because my brother is a senior here.

What do you enjoy most about JMU baseball?

I feel like the connection between the team is outstanding.

 

What are your goals for this year?

Individually, I want to become a weekend starter.  As a team, I would love to reach at least an NCAA regional.

What is your favorite pre-game music or ritual?

On days I pitch, I like to keep to myself pretty much the whole day.  I don't like talking to many people because I use the day to visualize my mechanics and gather my thought on how to throw to every batter.

Do you have a nickname within the team?

Coney

 

What can't you live without?

My grandmothers cooking.

What is something most people don't know about you?

I like to keep most things out in the open.
