I chose Tulane because... it has a very rich tradition in the Baseball program and it was the right fit for my family and my education needs.
The best part about playing baseball at Tulane is... I enjoy the overall atmosphere and playing for such a well-known program. I love playing for such a well-known coaching staff that has actually been in our shoes and knows what we are going through day-in and day-out.
My goals for this season are... to make it to a super regional and hopefully compete for a national championship.
Do you have any pregame rituals/superstitions? I definitely drink a coke before each game, as weird as that sounds, and I always wear the same underwear each game.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of baseball? My favorite thing to do outside of baseball is probably hang out with my friends or play Xbox.
What is your favorite food? Favorite Game Day Meal? My favorite food is red beans and rice with sausage. Pasta with shrimp.
If you could play for any MLB team, who would it be? I would play for the Atlanta Braves. I love Bobby Cox and am going to miss him dearly after he retires this year.
Who was your idol growing up? My idol growing up was Chipper Jones for the Braves. I wanted to be just like him in every way.
What was your greatest memory from last season? My greatest memory from last year was beating LSU at home in front of a sell-out crowd.
If you were not playing baseball, what would you be doing? I would be playing some other sports because I love sports and the overall atmosphere.
What music do you like to listen to before a game? I love to listen to some good, modern rap music or rock music to pump me up.
What is your hidden talent? My hidden talent is that I can juggle really well.
What is your favorite type of animal? My favorite animal is Koala bear. I held one when I was eleven and it was awesome.
Why did the chicken cross the road? To catch the dragon egg!!!
What is your favorite thing about New Orleans? I love the way the entire city embraces each other in a way. It feels like everyone has been through the same thing (hurricane Katrina) and that everyone embraces one another.
If you were going to be stranded on an island and could have 3 things with you, what 3 items would you take with you? A baseball, a shotgun, ammo.
What's something no one knows about you? I love to eat ranch dressing on pretty much anything.
Vanilla or Chocolate? Swirl.
What is the best road stadium/atmosphere that you have been in? East Carolina is definitely the greatest atmosphere I have played in ever!!
One word that describes you as a person... Friendly.
