MESSAGE FROM DANIEL
I am Daniel Lawson, a 2022 catcher from Davie County High School in Mocksville, NC. Standing 6-0 and weighing 200 pounds, I also can play first and third base. My current GPA is 3.94, and I plan to major in marine biology or business. I earned varsity letters the past three years and had a .400 OBP during my junior season. I own a 2.11 pop, throw 73 mph from behind the plate and my exit velocity is 92 mph.
I am very competitive and am constantly pushing my teammates to be better. My competitiveness is one thing that makes me unique. I don’t go down without a fight and want to accomplish the most I can. I enjoy working out to build muscle as well as condition. I train most days during the week with different weightlifting workouts and conditioning at a facility near my home. My school has great academics, and I’m in the STEM program there. I will also be taking community college classes linked to the high school next year. I love to be outside in my free time doing things like fishing and being at the beach.
Thank you for taking time to learn more about me. I look forward to talking soon about your program and school!
