“The way to get good jumps is I try to read it where the catcher is setting up,” said Rohan. “I read the batter if he has quick hands or if he’s not so quick.”
Rohan helped the Irish to their third straight district championship. He’s also one of the team’s best hitters. His season batting average hovered right around .455 all season, and he prefers to do his talking with the bat.
“I’m not the best speaker. My best method is just lead by example; try to work the hardest and try to lead by example.”
He does the same in the classroom. Rohan has a 4.3 grade point average and is ranked 6th in his class. He’ll attend either Ohio State or Youngstown State pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering.
“Mental toughness is involved in both school and baseball. You’re up late nights doing your homework and fighting not to fall asleep to get your work done. Just like in baseball, you are fighting not to fall asleep when you’re working out; stay zoned in, focus and keep working hard.”
Rohan is also a member of National Honor Society, Student Ambassadors, Students of Stewardship, as well as, serving as a tutor. He also took part in the student directed One Act Plays.
