Jenks' Alex Fisher – Baseball Spotlight Presented by BancFirst Jenks
When Alex Fisher first stepped onto the baseball field as an Oklahoma Bandit at the age of five, he had no idea his baseball journey would eventually end up at the varsity level for Jenks High School.
“I started playing tee-ball when I was five and played for the Oklahoma Bandits. This team stayed together all the way through sixth grade and a few of these guys still play with me today at Jenks,” said Fisher. “After only being able to get a couple of games in last year, everyone was beyond excited to get back on the field and play.”
Playing on this team for a great group of coaches is what makes this time so special for the junior second baseman.
“My teammates and coaches are everything to me. Baseball is the ultimate team sport where every person has to be involved to have success. My teammates and I have a lot of trust in each other,” said Fisher. “These guys are extremely fun to be around and play with. Being a junior, I’ve known these guys a couple of years now and we’ve created a bond. We put in a lot of hard work during the offseason and that brings us closer together.”
Expectations at Jenks are always high, something not lost on Fisher and his teammates.
“After all the work we put in, all the talent we have and the great coaching staff we have behind us, this team is expecting a state championship this year,” said Fisher.
In the younger grades, Fisher played many positions like most of his peers. From the infield to the outfield, he’s seen just about every angle a ball can take to find you.
“Growing up, I worked all around the infield and even played some outfield. When I got to Jenks, I turned in to a middle infielder and I am currently playing second base,” said Fisher.
Once his time at Jenks comes to an end in the spring of 2022, Fisher plans to continue his education in college.
“After I graduate high school, I’m interested in attending college, but I haven’t decided on a major or a career yet,” said Fisher.
