First and foremost I am a Team guy, get along great with my peers on and off the field.
Started my collegiate career at University of Indianapolis where I spent two years and helped the team win the GLVC conference championship at the D2 level. My role there was a backup catcher and a DH/pinch hitter under the head coach Gary Vaught. I moved to Crawfordsville Indiana to Wabash College which is a D3 school in the NCAC conference where I played my last two collegiate years. I started every game in both seasons splitting time at OF, 1st, and Catcher for my first season and for my last season I split time at the same spots however I started behind the dish every conference game, post season game, and a high majority of the regular season games. I’ve played in a couple of the top collegiate summer ball leagues in the U.S. from my freshman through junior year which were the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL), Mountain West College Baseball League (MWCBL), and the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL). During my time I have been fortunate to be: Mountain West league All-Star, Mountain West league HR Derby Participant, NECBL All-star Showcase Participant, 2nd team all-conference (Wabash 2018) 3rd team all-region (Wabash 2018), 2018 MVP, and a Team Captain for Wabash college.
I possess a heavy grit and fight style attitude playing hard at all times. I am highly coachable, have strong lead-by-example style leadership, and pride myself on my extreme work ethic. I am willing to learn and can play multiple positions, however I believe I am best behind the dish calling my own pitches and running the game is one of my strongest assets. It’s no coincidence that the year I was the full-time catcher at Wabash was the best season they’ve ever had. Going 32-17, winning our post season conference championship (Only the 2nd in history) and where I was named MVP of the Tournament and lead the team to its first Regional Championship game appearance. I play the game hard, I play it right, and I find a way to win.
Abilities summary: Solid defensive catcher with a strong arm and calls own game, consistently pop 1.8-1.9, hit for power along with a good average. Runs well, plays OF
