I was born in Texas in the year 1994 to my father, Salvador , and my mother, Angela. RMy father was stationed in Fort Hood while he was in the Army. He served for seven long years and then decided he wanted to start a family with my mother, who followed him around wherever he traveled. Once I was brought into the picture all the fun and travel stopped. We moved to Charlotte, North Carolina a year after I was born. Three years later the three of us migrated to Monroe where I’ve lived most of my life and where you will find me today. At the age of five I became a big brother to Daniel. Daniel is now twelve years old and is currently attending. Then, three years later my youngest brother Adam was born and you could say he looks a lot like his oldest brother. Adam is nine years old now and Adam is attending. Both of my brothers have started their young careers in sports just as I did. I have two grandparents of whom I love dearly. My grandmother, Nadine Mains, is very dedicated to her grandchildren and she shows her love for us every time we are together. Lastly my grandfather of whom I was named after, has quite the background; he played college baseball for the Ohio State Buckeyes and played along side many big name players. Later in my grandfather’s career he would tryout for the Chicago Cubs which ended sadly due to him injuring his arm.

Throughout my life I have persevered countless obstacles and triumphs that I would say defines who I am today. At the age of six I picked up my first baseball and fell in love with the game. After the first t-ball game that I played, I decided that it was what I wanted to do, I enjoyed every second I played. At the age of eight, I discovered football and basketball and I continue to play all three sports today. The day when I have to give up playing sports will be a sad day for me. It has been such a huge part of my life and I have so much passion for the game. Right now I am trying to pursue a college career in baseball. It doesn’t come as easily as I have hoped it would be but I will continue to work hard and hopefully it will payoff.
My family loves to travel every year. We all get together each year to relax and enjoy each other’s company. My fondest memory was when we vacationed in Destin, Florida. That year was my parents’ 20th anniversary. My whole family including: my aunt, uncle, 2 cousins, both grandparents, and my family of five went down to Destin and stayed in one of the most divine houses I have ever stayed in. The area where we stayed was right across the street from one of the most sublime beaches I have ever seen. Our house was 4 stories, had a gorgeous pool, and the most comfortable bed I had ever slept in. When it was time to leave, I was not ready to go. I enjoyed every second during our trip and unfortunately the week flew by. I recommend every beach lover to go to Destin, Florida. Yes, it is a 13 hour drive but the time you spend there will be well worth it.
Currently I am enrolled here at Central, and my back up plan if I do not play collegiate sports is to attend a 4 – Year College and earn my degree in Sports Management. I will pursue a career in coaching while teaching kids the characteristic of leadership and the way of life.
