Kraig Constantino
Title: Head Varsity Baseball Coach at Leigh High Sch
Organization / School: Leigh High School
Phone Number: 408-219-9122
Recommendation: To whom it may concern,

My name is Kraig Constantino and I am the head coach for the Leigh HS baseball program.
For the past 2+ years, I have had the pleasure of coaching Mitch Dowd.
Mitch has seen great success over his short time playing with Leigh HS. He has had many accolades
including 1st team all league and Sophmore of the year last season. Leigh HS is part of the Blossom Valley Athletic League which is a very competitive association. As a Sophmore last season, Mitch was a key part of our league Championship! I look forward to his contribution to our program for the next 2 years.

During the time Mitch has been at Leigh HS, I have known him to be an honest, ethical, hard working young man. He has been part of our community involvement and has spent time with our team helping the Salvation Army for the Christmas Drive. He has also been part of the local little league helping with tryouts and giving back to the younger players.

Mitch is a asset to our program and I really enjoy watching his competitive spirit. I have no doubt in mind
that he has a great future in front of him!

All the best!

Recommendation: I have been coaching Mitch for awhile and have been impressed with his ability to perform under pressure, his passion for the game, and drive to get better. I am confident Mitch will make an impact at the college level. On the mound, Mitch has the ability to throw in the low to mid 80's, with a solid curve, and very good changeup that gets hitters to swing and miss. Offensively he has power and can hit so he might be a potential 2-way guy at the right school. I see his future on the mound most likely. Right now I see him as a D2 level prospect with potential for low D1 if he continues to develop his velocity.

Recommendation: My name is Frank Payton and I am writing this letter of recommendation for Mitch Dowd of the Leigh School baseball program. I have been a coach and manager for over 30 years in the Santa Clara Valley. I have coached hundred of kids and have seen a lot of talent over the years. Mitch has the talent to become a Division 1 prospect as a pitcher and position player. What I am most impressed with is his love and respect of the game. Mitch displays great determination on and off the field, shows respect for his teammates and most of all has a phenomenal work ethic. Mitch is an all-around young man and would make an excellent addition to any D1 team. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
