Tell everyone about yourself?
Hi I'm Austin Weiss and I am a 5'5 Freshman catcher for Mcintosh High School. I also play travel ball for Atlanta Baseball Academy and finished ranked number 2 nationally last year in our division. I have a pop time of 1.9 and finished my first high school season batting .379.
What are your dreams in life?
I would love to play D-1 baseball for the University of Alabama. I have dreams of playing in the Major Leagues and playing for my hometown team, the Atlanta Braves.
What was your best game?
My best game was last Summer. I was 5-5 on throw downs to second base and went 4-5 with 2 doubles, a walk, and 4 RBI's. We ended up winning the game 13-1.
Why are sports/education important to you?
Sports have always been a very important part in my life. I have played baseball since I was 4 years old. Education is another vital sign of life. I try my hardest in school and try to excel in sports.
What can you do to make yourself better in your sport?
I can push myself to the limit when it comes to becoming better. If that means hitting the weights, running that extra mile, or hitting that extra bucket of balls, then I will do it. I have that fire in my belly when it comes to baseball. I hate losing as I'm sure every athlete does.
How do you make your team better?
I can make my team better by helping someone out with their swing or throwing with them. I am always be there for my teammates on and off the field.
What advice can you give other student-athletes?
Just work hard and let yourself become involved in the work. Most importantly have fun while working hard, it makes it alot less painful.
