Personal

All State 2 years (CA) at Orange Coast College. There won the JUCO CA State Championship. Hit .305 as a freshman in arguably the best Junior College in the States. Hit .327 in Summer ball in the West Coast league in 2017 with 150 at bats, voted the third best summer ball league in the US. Finished second in MVP votes for that league. Finished my college career hitting .320 in over 150 at bats in 2019. Still hold the record for most hit for the Portland Pickles in one game with 5 and 14 hits in a week (5 Games).

I also finished atop the batting leaders in Brisbane during the 2019-20 winter and was recognized by BBJO in this Instagram post:

Brent Murphy

Mater Dei high school Hitting coach/Baseball Coach

I can’t say enough good things about Nick, both as a person and a baseball player. I coached Nick for two years in high school and have continued to work with him as he played college baseball. Nicks baseball knowledge is top notch, so much so that I was trying to get him to come coach with me at the high school I’m coaching at currently if he hadn’t gone overseas. He’s a cage rat, always working on his swing or at the field taking ground balls....genuinely loves the game. He’s an unbelievable teammate, always putting the team and other players above his personal successes. Always a popular teammate.
