Lancers News · PLAYER INTERVIEW JOEY SCOTVOLD


1.How long have you been playing baseball?

I’ve been playing since I was about 3 years old.

 

2.What is your favorite part about the sport?

I don’t really have a favorite part, I love it all.

 

3.What is your least favorite part?

Nothing.

 

4.How have the coaches shaped the team for this season?

Our coaches have pushed us to “be detailed” in everything we do. The coaches know that physical mistakes are going to happen but as long as we dont get beat mentally they are ok.

 

5.How has the team improved for this season in your opinion?

This year we don’t have as many dominate arms on the mound as last year but I would say that our pitching staff has really stepped up and performed well throughout the fall and early spring.

 

6.Do you have any pre game rituals? If so what?

I don’t have any pre game rituals but our team always tries to play two ball before every game to try and calm ourselves

 

7.What is the team you’re looking forward to playing against and why?

Cal hi. They’ve been our rival for a long time and have been talking a lot about how they are going to beat us.

 

8.How do you feel like this season is going to go?

I feel really good about this team and the talent we have, so we are going to have a pretty good year.

 

10.What was one personal goal that you have for this year?

My main goal for this season is to be the best teammate that I can possibly be.

 

11.How has your family and friends helped/supported you?

My family has been the main reason I played baseball, without them I probably wouldn’t be playing.

 

  1.  What is your motivation?

My main motivation would have to be the team. Everyone has pushed each other to become better day in and day out and to compete with each other is the best motivation to get better individually and as a team.  

 

13.Do you plan on going to college? If so where and why?  

I plan on attending Rio Hondo community college and go into their nursing program.

 

14.Do you plan on playing baseball in college?

If I get the chance to play at the college level, I’m going to go play but if this is the last year I get to play i’m going to make the most of it.

 

15.What advice do you have for future athletes who want to play baseball or just future athletes in general for high school?

Some advice that I would give future athletes is to enjoy your time playing in high school because it goes by really fast and before you know it you will be off to college.
