CARY, Nc. (CBS19 SPORTS)-- Few people have as busy a summer as Jay Woolfolk.

"So obviously we got this and then depending on if we make it or not I think I'm going to go to the Cape for a little bit and then come back to play football," said UVA junior pitcher and quarterback Jay Woolfolk.

It's a schedule so jam packed it leaves no time to over analyze the past. Just a week after consecutive loses in the college world series Woolfolk is back on the field. This time though, for the red, white and blue.

"It's such an honor, not just putting on for your country but putting on for your school also," said Woolfolk,  "Coach O'Connor has done a lot for me so just being here is a great experience."

"I mean he knows how talented he is and he works really hard so there's no sulking from him he's ready to get back to it," said UVA junior infielder Griff O'Ferrall.

A chance to compete for a spot on the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team is a chance to get back on the right track, spending the first half of his summer devoted to baseball.

"You have people who believe in you, that you can do it so, when you have people like them that believe, you don't really think about how hard it is, you just want to go do it," said Woolfolk.

A spot on the final 26 man roster isn't the only position he is vying for. Woolfolk will trade his in his glove for a helmet in August, with football bringing it's own set of goals.

"Obviously this year you know competing for a starting job and that's the mentality you got to go work hard and be the best you and help your teammates be the best them also," said Woolfolk.

Bu from the dugout to under center the mentality is the same.

"The mindset is always the same," said Woolfolk, "You know, work hard. No matter if it's summer ball or no matter if I'm here or if it's football, it's the same. You just work hard and do the best you can."
