Biggest inspiration and why: Tom Tellmann. When I was four years old, I went with my brother, Ryan, to baseball lessons. Tom immediately took an interest in me. He even videoed me and sent it to a Yankees coach to view. He also had me assist at his camps. He always believed in me and saw my talent and mentored me on and off the field.

Message to underclassmen: Enjoy your time in high school because it does really fly by.
