I have played competitive baseball most of my life, the game has allowed me to develop many necessary and important skills on and off of the field. I am a leader, enjoy working in a teamwork-based environment, and I am a hard-working individual always putting in the work to better myself and to encourage others around me to do the same.

In high school I was the baseball team captain while taking honors and AP academics. I always set the next goal. So, I set the goal to play in college. I worked hard and diligently to develop my physical skills as well as my mental capabilities. I was invited to play in the Under Armour All-America Preseason Tournament in 2015. In my senior year, I earned Honorable Mention All-Hacienda League recognition.

As a College Freshman I started 9 games and I worked hard to become one of three starting pitchers over the next couple of years. My post season success and wins in the playoffs, helped lead us to the Northwest Conference Championship Title. Throughout my college career at Willamette University I currently rank 13th in starts, 21st in appearances, and 24th in innings pitched of all time. During my 4 years of Collegiate baseball, I had the privilege of playing high level summer baseball against players from all over the country with extremely high talent that included Division 1 athletes and draft prospects. This summer league simulated similarities to a minor league baseball experience that showed us how to live with host families, play in front of extremely large crowds, and what it takes to play baseball for a living.

In my experience playing pro-ball in 2020, I was able to learn from professional coaches, ex-MLB players, current affiliate players, as well as compete against them. In the Battle of the Bourbon Trail playing for the Florence Yall’s, I was able to expand my knowledge for the game and I learned a lot of tools that I can use to improve my skillset as a pitcher moving forward in my career.

Willamette University, Head Coach

Nathan is an outstanding young man. One of the best PEOPLE I have ever coached. Great teammate, great work ethic, passionate about the game of baseball.
He came into our program out of high school with some pitching mechanical issues. Had a rough first year in terms of command. Was not deterred at all. Went home and worked with former Major Leaguer Dave Coggin.
They cleaned up his arm action and his mechanics. Came back and was more confident as a Sophomore. Made strides the next summer as well and became a starting pitcher as a junior. This last year as a senior he was fantastic. Had a 6-3 record in 11 starts. Finished with only 7 walks in 54 innings pitched.
In addition Nathan was an exercise science major. He learned a ton about keeping care of the body and how to properly train. He was incredibly fit and did a great job maintaining his arm while playing for us. Did a lot to teach the other members of the team about all the information he had.
I know that he has the physical and mental ability to help your organization, but more importantly, without hesitation, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND his character, work ethic, and personality. He is a fantastic and passionate young man who makes the people around him better.

Nathan is always and always has been the first person in the weight room and one of the hardest working people i have ever seen. Over the two years I have worked with him he always asks questions in the pursuit of perfecting his craft. His mobility and overall athleticism has improved tremendously over the time i have known him and so has his arm path and pitching mechanics. I have no doubt that he will find a way to be successful at the professional level.
