INTERVIEW

  • Genetics

Who is your role model?

Anthony Rizzo. He is my role model because he has seen the hardships of life after being diagnosed by lymphoma yet he still perservered and acheived his dream and is one of the best and kindest people in the big leagues which I find inspiring.

If you weren't playing your current sport, what would you be doing??

Studying and playing other sports such as surfing, touch rugby and indoor soccer. Primary objective is studying so I can get a degree.

What do you want to study and why?

.Not only will I be able to play the sport I'm passionate about but studying in the USA will provide me with a better education than I could get in South Africa with a wider variety of courses available and far more opportunity, especially in a very specialised degree that I am studying. Playing baseball in the States also provides opportunity to improve against much better opposition that we experience in SA.

What was your most memorable sporting moment? (This could be you playing in a big tournament, a big sporting venue or experiencing a sporting event that inspired you)?

There are 2 that stick out for me. The first is from the end of the 2018 interprovincial tournament where I made the starting 9 for the South African team and won player of the tournament, best 3rd-baseman and best batter of the tournament. The other is a surfing memory from a trip with my best friend where we came within an arms length of a pod of dolphins.
