Favorite High School Athletic Moment
Playing at the State Tournament and winning the D3 Baseball Runner-Up title in 2019 (would have been even better if we’d won).

Wake up, go to school, and play the game. Every gameday is different, so other than these three, anything and everything can change.

Listen to your teachers and coaches. If you show them respect early on, you may eventually reach the point where you are sought after for helpful suggestions for the class/team.
A Person(s) Who Had A Major Impact On My Athletic Career & Why Is…
Brian Burgert; My 12U baseball coach, who taught me all the little “games within the game” of baseball.
Plans For After Graduation
Attend the University of St. Thomas (MN) to play baseball and study in the Pre-Medical professional program.
Favorite High School Class
Math, Physics, or Biology
Favorite High School Teacher& Why
Too hard to choose just one…
Mr. Miller & Mr. Radtke: Both for helping me with my Physics labs and problems and also being wise outside of their areas of expertise. Mr. Kasper: For teaching me that Mathematics can be more than just a headache and can even sometimes be fun. Mrs. Neuenfeldt: For teaching me to be a better writer, giving me a lot of freedom within the classroom, and offering advice and support outside of class as well.
The Most Interesting Place I’ve Ever Visited Is…
Yellowstone National Park
