Positions (alt): Utl, SS, RP
College: Rogers State University
I’m a student of the game with a lot left in the tank. I was a 2 time All-Conference & All-Region RP and a 2017 D2 All-American RP (link) in my two years in Oklahoma. I had legitimate hopes of getting drafted or signed with my sub 1.50 career college ERA after talking to scouts with the Cubs and Marlins. Neither of which happened so I coached my college team (Rogers State, OK) for the 2018 season and the 2018-2019 offseason. Mid-high 80s fastball with great sink and run consistently with great feel for a varying array of breaking balls. I have never had a serious injury or missed any time *knock on wood*. I would love to continue to use my baseball tools as a gateway for me to explore other countries and keep pitching. I am an upper echelon competitor. I can’t stand to do anything less than win in anything I do athletically.
As a player my strengths are my pitch sequencing, accuracy, movement, controlling the running game, and bulldog mentality. I am hungry, positive, and very poised. I’m extremely comfortable in the field at any position. I play SS in Belgium when I do not pitch. I am also the fastest runner on the team and have been scoring 2 runs/game.
I am aspiring pitching or head coach at the collegiate or professional level eventually, and love to learn as much as I can everywhere I end up. As a coach my strengths are seeing and communicating mechanical keys and cues in a pitcher’s mechanics that make them increase accuracy and movement. I have a great feel for the game. I have learned from some amazing coaches and have always led people whether it’s on the field, in the classroom, or in the workplace.
If possible, I would like to play with my friend, Sam Casinelli but that is not required.
