1. Why did you decide to sign with Elgin Community College? I decided to sign with Elgin Community College due to its rich program history and how great of a feeder program it has. There have been many players signed to big Division 1 schools out of Elgin and that’s my goal. I also know I can get my core classes out of the way and be prepared to go into my field of engineering. The goal at Elgin is to get stronger and put on some weight to add muscle and throw harder. I am already on a workout program for them and I’m excited to see results. 2. Describe the excitement you feel about becoming a college student-athlete? Being able to continue to play baseball at the collegiate level is a feeling not many people can have. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and it’s great to know that if you can set your mind to something, you can achieve it. 3. What advice would you give to other athletes looking to get recruited? Getting recruited is a VERY difficult task. You have to be seen at the right time by the right people. You have to go where you feel right because if you don’t fall in love with the college that you’ll be at for quite some time, you will hate it. I was scouted by Division 1 schools, but I really didn’t get any offers. My dream has always been to play Division 1 baseball and that’s why I decided to take the Juco route. You have to make the most of your opportunities because you can only play baseball for so long, and you do not want to have regrets later in life. 4. Who has been the biggest influence in your sports career and why? My mom, she has always been very supportive of all my sports and activities. She is extremely busy with work nearly every day of the week, but still manages to find time to come and watch me play baseball, no matter where it is. I can give credit to Pat Fosnacht for teaching me the ways of baseball and I am extremely thankful for everything he did. 5. What would you like to accomplish during your college sports career? First off, I want to get an invite to the NJCAA World Series while I’m at Elgin and hopefully win it. My next step would be getting recruited to a big Division 1 school to play the rest of my career and hopefully get to the NCAA World Series. My overall biggest goal is to get drafted, no matter where or when, and have that opportunity that so few get.   Our Mission at SportsForce Baseball: We are on a mission to help our select number of qualified and evaluated players maximize their recruiting offers and make the best college decision. Started by CEO & founder Andrew Beinbrink, SportsForce Baseball is a nationally recognized college recruiting advisory group with over 40 former college coaches, players, and MLB scouts in 10 different states. During the last 11+ years, we’ve helped over 1,000 players make their college commitments. Read below, why we are different from every recruiting group in the country. Why SportsForce is Different: * View our Home Page Video Unlike most recruiting companies, we do not just partner with anyone for our hands-on recruiting programs. Instead, we only partner with qualified players who meet our Five academic, athletic, and coachability selection factors. We evaluate between 10,000-12,000 players each summer and fall at top showcases and selectively advise, and advocate for only a limited number of players each year by directly contacting college coaches to help them maximize recruiting offers. Each of our expert college recruiters is limited to how many players they will advise so there is the best combination of hands-on guidance and personal recruiting outreach to college coaches. Social Media Exposure: We also utilize our growing Twitter following at @SportsForceBB which is followed by over 500 NCAA D1, D2, D3, NAIA, and JC coaches nationwide and growing fast. To Get Evaluated by Our Expert College Recruiting Staff: Option 1: Complete our Recruiting Questionnaire Option 2: Email us at scouting@sportsforceonline.com Options 3: DM us on Instagram @SportsForceBB or Twitter @SportsForceBB and share recent video, stats, or measurables (velocity, 60, exit speed, pop time, etc…) for our scouts to evaluate.
