I have been staying sharp for I am still in college playing ball.
I played in the 2019 summer for the so cal sparrows as a Utility player that played 3rd base in the Sunset collegiate baseball league that made all-stars that summer as a 3rd baseman.
As a Teammate
A dedicated and motivated athlete that tries to improve yearly. I am a vocal leader that enjoys that game and understands the grind.
As a coach, I bring the experience of playing the game at a college level. Although I do not have experience as a coach I do have the knowledge of the game and a motivated drive. My coaching philosophy is you have to relax but drill the grind into players for there are always improvements and adjustments that must be made in playing careers. Throughout my playing career, I have done different practice drills and have learned them through everyday practices so I understand why the mechanics are important in the game and repetition.
I want to build up a professional career, for I have the talent to improve and excel still.
