After setting a program record with a 0.75 ERA in 24 inning pitched in 2015, David was named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team as a sophomore. This year, Ellingson looks to help the Hoyas make the BIG EAST Tournament for the second year in a row and has already recorded six saves on the season. Let’s go In the Huddle with David!
Why did you choose to come to Georgetown?
I chose Georgetown because of the great academic atmosphere with a baseball team in a competitive Division I conference. You get the best of both worlds here being a student-athlete.
What has been your favorite team experience?
When we were coming home from the Seton Hall series. We found out on our way home that we made the BIG EAST Tournament. I have never seen our team so close and so happy! It was an unreal experience!
How do you give 110% for Georgetown?
An example that I believe shows how Georgetown Baseball players give 110% is when we have bus rides back from a weekend series and get back early in the morning – and still attend class that very day! It shows how disciplined this team is and how important being both a student and athlete is.
What would you like to say to Georgetown Athletics donors?
Thank you! I cannot express how much your support means to us. We would not be where we are without you!
