Career highlights

Nominated team captain for both high school and college teams. District hitter of the year (2015), 2x All America (2015-2016)

 

What I bring to the table

Four pitch mix: Fastball (88-91 mph), Change-up (78-81 mph), Slider (78-82 mph), Curveball (75-77 mph). Career .417 hitter in competitive South Florida high school baseball with the ability to drive the gaps and stretch extra bases. 6.9 60 yard dash. 1.85 pop time from behind the plate

I have been a two-way player for the majority of my college and high school career. While my specialty is certainly pitcher, my mix of athleticism and arm strength has allowed me to be a successful outfielder. While my catching experience is limited I am more than willing/capable of taking on that role.

I would describe myself as a high-energy teammate with a passion for development. I embrace leadership positions and want to be a part of building a successful team culture conducive to winning. While I am comfortable being a vocal leader I do believe that leading by example is an effective strategy. I enjoy spending my free time improve in both the physical and mental aspects of the game.

 

Coaching

As a coach, I would bring advanced knowledge of leadership skills as well as coaching tactics. In the 19 years I have been playing, I have had an opportunity to play every position on the field and will be able to articulate the needs of those positions to the next generation of baseball players. I have an undergraduate degree in Sports Management with a focus on coaching and facility management. In addition, I am also pursuing a master’s degree in leadership.

 

Overseas Goals

I love the game of baseball and want to play as long as possible. Furthermore, I enjoy the growing diversity that has been seen at the highest levels of the game and wish to see that continue through growing the popularity of the game worldwide.

Nathaniel is a student of the game. He loves to learn and impart his wisdom and knowledge to younger players. Nathaniel is a hard worker and displays high character in all that he does. He would be a great fit for any team.

Graham Parris

Toccoa Falls College, Pitching Coach

I have really enjoyed working with Nate this past year. Nate's passion for baseball is evident in how he plays the game just based on how much time he puts into his craft. He is the first to show up to get the field set up for practice and usually stays and extra two hours late to get extra swings in the cage. In addition to his passion, Nate constantly steps up as a leader for our staff by leading workouts, giving advice, and setting an example on how we want our guys to play. Over this past year I have relied on him for countless things, and he has more than come through for me whether it be on the field, in the dugout, or even outside of baseball.
