Persevering in his faith

Former Kofa baseball star at peace with pandemic situation.

Cameron Sharp has committed his life to the game of baseball.

He has even trained diligently in the sport for the past 8 years, both at Kofa High School and Arizona Christian University; playing both in the outfield and pitching positions.

Before closing out his collegiate career with ACU, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics permanently cancelled the rest of the Spring season; following suit with the NCAA.

It didn't take long for Sharp's discouragement to turn around, thanks to his strong faith in Jesus.

"Just having the faith that it's not going to be the end of the world. And just knowing that I'm loved by the most high King. This is something that, it could easily be seen as just 'sit around our dorm and be miserable or sad about this whole thing.' Or we could reach out to those who are hurting."

Sharp's belief that God isn't surprised by the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic has proven to be an inspiration to how he wants to further tackle his own future.

"The unknown is going to hurt a little bit. But, I'm definitely leaning more towards kind of just moving on. I'm just kind of ready to, you know, (go to the) next chapter type thing."

Losing the remaining time he had for baseball has allowed Sharp to focus on preparing for his life after college.

Sharp will soon graduate with a degree in Business Administration with the hopes of one day owning his own restaurant.

Sharp is the older brother of current TCU track student athlete Keiley Sharp.
