High School Graduation: 2027
Decatur, GA, USA
Tell us about yourself...
My name is Dominic M. Butler. I'm 14 years old and live in Decatur, GA. I was born and raised in Decatur. I attended Snapfinger Elem, Columbia Middle School, and am now a Southwest Dekalb High School freshman. I am in the graduating class of 2027 and looking forward seeing myself walking to get my High School Diploma.
How did you find out about the eda?
I was introduced to the EDA Combine through a flyer found on FB Black Boys Play Baseball page (BBPB) from my mother. After the Showcase was over, I was contacted by Derek Del Rosal (Recruiter) to interview for the EDA Program.
WHAT DOES THE EDA OPPORTUNITY MEAN TO YOU?
This scholarship will mean a lot to me as my mom is a single parent working hard to get me through High School and into a great college doing the sport that I love, "Baseball."
Share a little bit about your background...
I was born and raised in Decatur, GA. I have lost both of my grandfathers, who I was extremely close to and great role models within two years of each other. My parents are divorced, but both are active in my life. I was almost held back in middle school 8th grade but had to stand up for myself and prove that I could succeed as a great student and I was promoted to the 9th grade.
tell us one fun fact about yourself...
I have been playing baseball since I was four years old, and I also love to dance.
What career would you like to do?
Right now, I really am not sure, except for being a Professional Baseball player. I haven't figured out my backup plan yet.
