“As a coach, I am passionate about learning more about the ins and outs of the game, finding small competitive advantages against an opponent, and helping players utilize their bodies for more functional and efficient patterns of movement to maximize their potential. College baseball is a world that leads to significant growth and teaches valuable life lessons for young men, and helping these young men find their place in that world and seeing that growth is a deep passion of mine."
