1. Why did you decide to sign with Daytona State College? I was talking with the coaches back and forth for a while after I went to a showcase at Daytona State, toured some of the campuses and learned about the program, I knew it was a good place to start my baseball career and education. After I had Tommy John surgery on June 30, 2011, they were one of the very few schools that still stayed in touch with me and checked out how my rehab was going, so I felt comfortable with them from the beginning of the recruiting process. 2. Describe the excitement you feel about becoming a college student-athlete? It really is such a blessing. Everyone dreams of playing in that next level and for me to be able to have a chance to play in college, after missing my senior year injured, it’s truly overwhelming at times. 3. What advice would you give to other athletes looking to get recruited? All I can say is play like every game is your last, go the extra mile, run when others aren’t, stay positive if something isn’t going your way and have a short memory. Mistakes are made when your mind isn’t on the task at hand. Also, being willing to go up to a coach and initiate a conversation or introducing yourself in a professional way really makes an impact. 4. Who has been the biggest influence in your sports career and why? It would have to be my father. He was an All-American athlete when he was in high school for soccer and baseball and played both sports exceptionally well at Rollins College in Winter Park. He knows what it takes to get to the next level and he put all of the time he could into helping me get where I am today. When I didn’t want to work he pushed me to get out there and keep getting better. I can honestly say I wouldn’t have made it past little league without his coaching and motivation. 5. What would you like to accomplish during your college sports career? Staying healthy and having a quality education that is paid for. I love baseball, but I was raised to know my education comes first. After coming off major surgery, staying healthy is my main focus and the success will come with the hard work I put in each and every day.   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 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.
