I grew up around the game of baseball. I have continued to get better as the years go on, but it has not come easy. I work out 5 days a week with Rod Flahr who works with countless professional athletes that come out of Regina, Saskatchewan. Doing this allows me to perform at a high level all season. My freshman season I hit .285. My sophomore season I started to grow into my swing and hit .300 with a large spike in power number. My junior year at Louisiana Tech I hit .333 in conference. My senior year I had the best year of my college career. I was much more consistent hitting. I ended up hitting .360 with 11 doubles and 6 home runs. I run a 6.8 and have a good IQ on the base paths. I primarily catch and play first base, but I can play almost anywhere. I am a low line drive hitter with gap to gap power.

Cole is a very talented baseball player and quality human being. He has an extremely high level work ethic and did a great job as an All-Conference player for us for 2 years on our 2016 and 2017 Nationally ranked ball clubs. He played multiple positions for us , catcher, 1B, OF , DH. Offensively he is a gap to gap line drive hitter with the ability to drive the ball out of the ballpark. Cole received some pro interest from MLB organizations while he was here and I would highly recommend him for the next level.
Cole Warken is one of the most highly motivated and professional college baseball players that I have had a chance to coach. He is a relentless worker and has a true feel for high level baseball. Offensively Cole can drive the baseball with power to all fields. He can handle the bat situationally in any count with the best of them. I believe his swing and approach is going to translate at the professional level with a wood bat. Cole can catch at a very high level. His athleticism and arm strength allow him to consistently control the running game. He was also one the top First Baseman in our region where he earned All League Honors.
