OUR Q&A

PBR: What were your expectations about the recruiting process? What were you looking for out of a college program to continue your baseball career at?

SilvaMy biggest expectation was to go to a program with good culture. It didn’t matter if they were the best team out there, if the team wasn’t like a family I wasn’t going yo go there.

PDid location or distance from home play a factor in your decision?

SNo

PWhen did the recruiting process really start to heat up for you? Where did the school you committed to first see you play?

SIt started to heat up the summer after my freshman season in high school. TCU first saw me on Twitter when I was pitching, not even hitting or on the field.

PWhat do you like most about the program you chose, and what were the key factors in making your decision?

SThe thing I like most about TCU is how much of a family the team is. Everyone treats each other as a brother and tries to get the best out of each other.

PWhat other schools were on your short list before you made your final decision?

SUniversity of Texas

PWho is the best player you have faced in your state? What about them makes for a tough opponent?

S: Nathan Detmer my freshman season in the playoffs. He was just a great pitcher with overpowering pitches.

PAt what point in your career did you realize you were a college-caliber player and became serious about taking your game to the next level?

 

SI realized it during the summer after my freshman school season. Colleges just started watching me during tournaments and it became more clear when I was invited to the PBR Future Games to play with the best 2021 uncommitted guys across the country.

PWhat advice would you give to young baseball players striving to get where you are?

SSet your goals high and never take no for an answer.

PWhat is the most memorable moment in your baseball career to this point?

SMy first home run when I was 12. I remember it so vividly and much excitement it brought me.

PPreview your high school team's season for us. How do you feel your team will be?

SWe will have a great season. We didn’t lose a single starter and everyone continues to get better. We have a chip on our shoulders from last year and we have something to prove.
