From AZTeenMagazine (September 2007):

Although the youngest of this group, Dillon Everett hasn't let his age stop him. In fact, Everett left our overnight photo shoot to go tend to his baseball duties, catching absolutely zero sleep the night before. As shortstop on his Horizon High’s varsity squad as well as the Angel Scout Team, which is basically a stepping stone to playing in the major leagues, Dillon doesn’t see baseball as simply a pastime.

“I love everything about the game. Not only is it exciting, but it is a game that forces me to stay focused and pay attention," he says.

Dillon’s secret for baseball success and carrying a 4.25 GPA is not as obvious as one might think: “Stay close with your family.” Dillon plans to attend college to earn a degree in business and pursuit of a career as a professional baseball player.

Along his path, Dillon is always strengthened and inspired by his love for God. He is an active member at Living Stream Church and is in regular attendance with his family. What separates him from the masses is that he doesn’t care what others think and can make his decisions on his own. Some lasting advice this All-American poster child has for azTeen readers: “Make good choices, be patient, and do the right thing because it always pays off in the end, no matter how long it takes.”
