Great Mills HS & Southern Maryland Senators
What do you want to celebrate about your athlete?
MJ had a dramatic turn around both academically and with his health. He had a pacemaker since he was eight years old and right before the season his pacemaker was turned off because his heart is now working 100% on him!
And his academic achievement of 8 straight quarters over a 3.0 GPA and 3 quarters over a 4.0 GPA was a tremendous turn-around he worked hard to achieve!
MJ worked hard academically and went from two years of a 2.0 GPA to a 3.75 last year and a 4.0 this year (also 4 college classes with a 3.25 GPA)! He has overcome a heart issue to still play baseball at a high level!
"We are beyond proud of him and he inspires more people than he will ever realize!"
What life skills do you see your athlete learning through sports?
Determination, Leadership, Work ethic...MJ is a very unselfish player who always thinks of the team first.
What is a character trait your Athlete has that you adore?
His perseverance is second to none!
He was born with a Heart issue, but it hasn't stopped him. He lost Grandparents, saw his own brother die, has been cut and told not good enough, didn't do well academically, yet he figured it out and made it a positive!
None of those things have taken him away from his goal!
Besides sports, what does your Athlete aspire to be?
After playing baseball in college, MJ wants to be a High School History teacher and coach baseball and football.
Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know.
That we are beyond proud of him, and that he inspires more people than he will ever realize...to him it is just everyday business....mean while it is pretty darn special!
