Andrew Wright

Head Coach

Gianfranco is extremely competitive with a very strong work ethic. He really matured during his time in our program and became one of our leaders. He plays with passion and cares about winning. His 60 time ranged between 6.45-6.55 last fall and is as dynamic an offensive player as I have coached. Defensively, he can play OF and the right side of the infield. I have a great relationship with G and hope that something works out.

Ryan Hunt

Hitting Coach

Gianfranco possesses a tenacious desire to succeed. He is perhaps one of the most competitive individuals I have ever met. As a former teammate of his, and after having the opportunity to coach him for a year, I can say with complete conviction that his presence elevates the quality of his peers’ performances and personalities. On the baseball field, Gianfranco is as dynamic of an offensive player as they come. He can hit for power and steal bases on command. He is also a versatile defender who will put his body on the line to preserve runs.
