Flint Wallace

Texas Baseball Ranch, Director

I have know Carson for several years now. He is the epitome of a person with a growth mindset. He is always seeking out knowledge on how to perform at a higher level, but more importantly, he is also seeking out ways to apply that knowledge into an individual’s training routine. His integrity, work ethic and dedication will make him a valuable resource to any organization, and for the athletes he works with.

Tom O'Connell

International Sports Group Baseball, President

Carson is a man of high character who has studied the science of pitching in great depth in order to perfect his craft. Not only would he be able to add a professional arm to any international baseball staff, his knowledge of the game would make him a worthwhile addition to any club's coaching staff.

Jordan Harrison

Atlanta Braves, AAA Pitcher

Carson is a high character person that never takes shortcuts and he always does things the right way. He brings a positive attitude to everything he does and his work ethic is second to none. I have never played with anyone who has studied the art of pitching more than Carson! He is a great teammate and locker room guy. On the field, he is a bulldog on the mound and brings a high intensity every time he pitches. He has a strong arm and is always looking for ways to get better. He would be an asset to any team and it would be crazy for someone to pass up on a guy like that.
