Mike is a three sport varsity athlete, playing football, basketball and baseball. His first love is baseball.

Mike is a wide receiver and linebacker of the football team. He catches for baseball. He is captain and is first-team All County for both sports.
Myers said, “It's a real honor to get from coaches. It goes to show what hard work can do for you.”
