Commitment Corner

TELL US MORE...

Tell us about your commitment. Why did you decide on your school? 

I committed to Goldey-Beacom because the coaches made it feel like a family. I have two friends currently on baseball team, and one joining me in 2023. Playing a competitive division 2 schedule.

The offseason is upon us. Tell us a little about your off-season training:

Weight training 7x. Arm strength training with Steve Schrenk at Pitching Coach Pro. Cage work hitting off a pitching machine and hittrax system 4x.

 

Baseball is a game built on adversity & failure. Who is your biggest influence in the game that has helped you handle the ups and downs?

My Mom beat cancer twice. Ups and downs of baseball are tough, but watching my Mom battle taught me real life toughness.

 

Best player you ever shared the field with and why? 

Jake Dally - my bro hits nukes

 

How has your experience been with Prep Baseball Report?

It’s been fun, competitive and something me and my teammates could do together. It’s a great way to compete again the best, and also get exposure.
