MADISON – Joey Daws is devoted to playing baseball. “I like it so much because my dad played it when he was little,” he said.

Daws said playing baseball helps him develop team sportsmanship. “Baseball has taught me no matter if I win or lose I keep my head up high, knowing I did my best,” he said.

During games, he plays anywhere that his team needs him, but his primary positions are first base and pitcher.

In addition, Daws plays football for St. John the Baptist Catholic School. “My positions in football are defensive end and right tackle. I am best at defense,” he said. He also races dirt bikes.
