Born and raised in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, VA, sports and outdoors has always been my passion. I started enjoying athletics at an early age. Throughout high school I was a three-sport athlete where I lettered 4 years in football, basketball, and baseball; as well as leader in FEA and FCA. I received a scholarship to the University of Virginia to play baseball; however, I was then selected in the 10th round of the 2013 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft to the Houston Astros out of high school. I played 5 seasons in the Houston Organization before continuing my career independently for the Evansville Otters and currently in year ten for the York Revolution. I am married to a beautiful wife, Nikki, and just welcomed our sweet little girl Karsyn to our family. When not competing in athletics, I enjoy all the outdoors of fishing and hunting, as well as playing golf. In 2014, we open a baseball and softball facility to give our community and athletes a place to work on their skills year-round. Having a passion for helping youth athletes and wanting to see student athletes have all the resources necessary for a great experience in sports, led me to getting involved with Vertical Raise. We work to create the easiest and most efficient fundraising platform on the market. Please reach out if we can be of service or to request additional information.
