I am from the dirt that sprays in the air, to the turf that gets stuck in my shoes. From the feel of the leather grip as I set my hands for the shot, from the popping of the leather as the ball hits my glove.

I am from the vision of the baseball diamond,
from the hundred yard gridiron, from baseline to baseline.

I am from the click-clack as I run to the field,
From the leather popping as I run out to my position. From the ball bouncing, to the soundless swoosh. I am from my mom screaming and cheering for me from the sidelines. I am from the final buzzer to the last whistle.

I am from the taste of victory.

I am from shooting buzzer-beater to win the game and hitting the walk-off hit, to realize that the only reason I was able to accomplish these goals, because I was able to overcome all of the failures and obstacles in life.

Most of all I am from all of the memories. I am from the moments in my life that were life changing for me. All of these memories make me look at myself in the mirror and think to my self, this is who you are, so be proud of it. I will treasure all of these memories throughout my whole life.
