As a freshman:
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.

My grandmothers cooking.
What is something most people don't know about you?
I like to keep most things out in the open.
