Most people come to IMG Academies to focus on one sport. Well this young man had trouble finding out which sport he loved the most. Pressure from the baseball team to get him to play baseball due to his father playing in the big leagues he decided to switch sports after Christmas break. He went from the game he loved the most to a game he had not played in a few years. Baseball would have turned out fine for him if he would have stuck with it however he did what was best for him he went back to playing soccer. Soccer then returned the favor to him when he committed to Farleigh Dickinson to play soccer there next year. If you have not guessed him yet I am talking about Moises Alou. Even though he went away from baseball he has still been a friend outside of sports and he will succeed in whatever he decides to do.    — Blake Perry
