The legend of Aidan Byrne


Aidan Byrne stands six feet tall and was born on November 27, 2000. He attended Our Lady of Visitation grade school where he excelled in basketball, baseball, and football. Sports have played a big role in his life and have taught him lessons that have helped him grow into the man he is today.

In grade school, Aidan started at guard for basketball. He also was a pitcher and shortstop for his baseball team. His favorite sport is baseball, which is the same as his fathers who played for UC. His dad was also a pitcher who at one point had the record for most saves in UC baseball history.

Now we can fast forward about eight or nine years when Aidan is a junior in high school. He currently playing baseball and basketball and decided to call it a career in football. Aidan starts on the basketball team and helped them go way farther in this year’s post season than they were expected. He is an overall athlete that loves to compete.

Aidan is a star pitcher for Elder’s baseball team who was ranked second in Ohio earlier this season. He is a relief pitcher and sometimes closer. He also has done very well on the bump, with an ERA of 1.86. He has pitched a total of eight innings which is very good.

I asked him how he felt so far this year and he said, “The year has been very good. I have been doing well; getting saves and just having fun on the field.” He also added, “I have also had a lot of fun this year because of how successful we are currently.”

Byrne is a two sport athlete he doesn’t just play baseball, but also plays basketball. Aidan started at shooting guard and averaged 4.9 points per game. But the stat sheet doesn’t show how much of an impact he had on the game.

The basketball team went farther than everyone expected. Elder finished with a record of 14-12 but the record didn’t show how they played in the state tournament. Aidan said, “It was fun to have the run we had because of how we played as a team.” He also said, “I had fun with the team because everyone liked to have fun and loved to compete.”

After high school Aidan wants to continue to play baseball. He doesn’t have an idea where but he know he want to continue his school and athletic career.

Aidan is a great kid, athlete and he knows that he can succeed if continues to works hard.
