I can’t say enough about him on and off the field. He’s a man of high character and always strived to be his best in the classroom and on the field, and his work ethic is unparalleled. He was a tremendous teammate and one that the guys looked up to because of his servant leadership. He also has a keen understanding of the game itself, he’s a very smart baseball player. Has the ability to see situations and make quick decisions. I feel very fortunate to have coached Jonathan for 4 years.
