Personal

In high school I was a four year varsity starter.  I was a First Team all league selection my sophomore and junior year.  I was All CIF Division 2, 1st Team All Area Pasadena Star News, and selected to play in the SGV All Star Game.  At Citrus College I was a All Western State Conference honorable mention catcher. At the University of La Verne I made a position change and became the starting third baseman my junior year of college.

As a baseball player, what I personally can bring to the table is my dedication, commitment to the team and the organization, passion, leadership, knowledge, and 100% of my best effort everyday that I put on a uniform and step out onto the field.  I am a coachable player and I will do whatever it takes to help them team succeed. I am a catcher and third baseman, but I do not mind playing another position if the coaching staff believes that it will help the team win. I was unfortunately not eligible to play my last year of college due to an NCAA semester eligibility rule.  The administration at the University of La Verne, the athletic department, and myself, was not notified until October of last year that I was already in my final semester as a student athlete, which did not allow me to participate in the spring. However, I was still allowed to be a part of the team and I was given the role of being a student manager/coach. I would throw batting practice, hit ground balls, fly balls, and help them with their fundamentals, as well as mental approaches when hitting. Our team went on to win the SCIAC Championship in 2018.  

I believe that I can add a lot of value to any organization that is willing to give me a chance to not only play, but to help coach and teach, as well as impact others in a positive way.  As I stated earlier, I was not allowed to play my last year of collegiate baseball, however, what this experience has given me as well as taught me, is that I love the game of baseball. I love playing it, I love being around the field, my teammates, and seeing others succeed after all of the hard work they put in.  If I am given another chance to play, you will get my absolute best effort, commitment, dedication, focus, concentration, and desire to succeed.

Abilities summary: As a hitter I have the ability to hit for a high average, good executor (hit and runs, scoring fly balls, sac and drag bunts), tough to strike out, good contact hitter, and have a good on base percentage.
As a catcher my pop time varies from a 1.97-2.10.  I am an intelligent catcher who knows how to handle a pitching staff.  My first two years in junior college I called the pitches during games for our team because I earned that trust from our head coach.  I receive and block well as well as do a good job of controlling the running game.

Brendan is a dedicated person. He lifts, trains and is someone who can be counted upon to give his best effort. He swings the bat for an average and will be tough to strike out. We played him behind the plate and at 3rd base, and he was solid in both places. He is the kind of player who is like a coach on the field, which is why we hired him last year to do just that. He is someone I recommend for this very thing. He’ll do great and you will be pleased with him as a person.

I have worked with Soup since his junior year at Arcadia High. He was an All CIF player for us and a team leader. Brendan is a detail oriented young man, extremely hard worker and is self motivated. I asked him to coach for me not only because of these qualities, but also his knowledge of how to play and teach baseball. Our players really respond to him and he often works with them on his free time. We are lucky to have Brendan as part of our staff and highly recommend him to your program. If you have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Brendan is a high character guy who has a great feel for the game of baseball. As you probably already know, he played at Citrus JC as well as here at the University of La Verne. He then also helped us coach when he ran out of eligibility. He was the first one to get to the field and the last one to leave when he played and coached. He was a leader on the field as well as in the club house. I think he will bring leadership, high baseball IQ, and talent to your organization.
