Career Bio

Mike has gone through the entire process from college baseball to professional baseball. His recruiting process began in Baltimore MD, where he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates as a LHP from Loyola HS. This draft opened the doors for Mike to attend James Madison University, a NCCAA D1 school located in Virginia, where he obtained a full athletic scholarship. He is a 4-year graduate with a BS degree majoring in Sports Management and a minor in Coaching. He was then drafted by his hometown Baltimore Orioles in the 9th round. His professional career took him through every level of baseball (HS, College Baseball, Professional Baseball). His knowledge, experience and uplifting personality is an enormous benefit to our team.

After his professional career ended, Mike worked with our youth in Pasco County Florida Parks and Recreational Dept. He then moved to Houston Texas, where he began his corporate career in marketing and promotions for over 15 years. Mike has a passion in training and developing athletes by using technology in filming with scientific analysis. When asked about what makes a successful athlete he said, "A Balanced Athlete". He truly believes in the importance of education and motivation. If you have any questions for Mike, please reach out to the link below.

Mike has a beautiful family with his wife Laura and their two children Anna and Matthew. And yes, his children are currently utilizing SportsForce to assist them through the college recruiting process.

Why Athletes & Parents Are Raving About Us

  • Austin Mowrey Austin Mowrey Columbia University - Baseball Team
    I would recommend SportsForce to other student-athletes because of the work they do for you. They provide all student athletes with the chance to continue their education and athletic careers.  
  • Garrett Hastings Garrett Hastings University of Kentucky - Basketball Team
    They (Sports Force) have an understanding of the process, templates and the data to develop communication for schools across the country and all athletic and educational levels. But be prepared as a family to make an effort to work together and research. 
  • Joel Brown Joel Brown Chapman University - Baseball Team
    I would recommend SportsForce to any other athlete because recruiting today is entirely different than it was 10 years ago. You can’t just be a star athlete on your high school team or have a good weekend at a tournament and receive a college scholarship. You have to go out of your way and contact as many schools as possible and SportsForce makes sure you are able to successfully do this. They helped me receive opportunities I wouldn’t have been able to receive on my own. SportsForce is the way to go if you are serious about playing college athletics.  
  • Austin Ruiz Austin Ruiz Azusa Pacific University - Baseball Team
    I highly recommend getting involved with Andrew and his talented team as early on in the process as you can. It will save you a lot of frustration and money in the long run. His team is very knowledgeable and they can help in many ways. It was money well spent and we thank you guys for everything you have done for our son as well as our family. Jenna is next!  -Parents of Austin Ruiz
