Most of my friends from home seem to think being a baseball player at Texas A&M Corpus Christi is a life full of beaches, bikinis and baseball. Well, not so much… So far this fall, it’s been a life full of books, barbells and bullpen sessions.

I thought about all of my teammates that have come and gone through this program, and what being an Islander has meant to me. I remembered how I felt on this day, three years ago as a freshman, meeting the coaching staff and upperclassmen. I was both nervous and excited to begin my career as an Islander. As I approached the Island Campus for my fourth year, my nerves and excitement had not faded in the least. Continue reading
