Lozinak Finishes What He Starts, lands scholarship at Morehead State

Will Lozinak (Bishop Guilfoyle HS, Altoona, PA) may be a starter in college or he may be a reliever. Only time will tell. But one thing US Elite Director, Mark Helsel, knows about the big righty is he will finish what he starts. “Will has been one of the most loyal and dedicated players in our organization over the 9 years I’ve been doing this. For a variety of reasons, we had some turnover in his grad year, which is very rare for our organization. But through all of that, Will and his family never wavered. They were loyal to the program. Will made it clear that he wanted to finish his career with US Elite. On a personal level, I am extremely grateful to Will and his family. He stepped up as a leader at a time when we really needed that. As a player he has been a leader on the field. He’s been fearless. I have a ton of respect for Will Lozinak. He is a “stand up” kid in every way. I also want to commend his parents, Aimee and Dave. They have raised an amazing young man”.

Last year Lozinak won the coveted Brad Evans award, given to the player in the organization who demonstrates qualities such as dedication, loyalty, character, hustle, energy and being a great teammate. Lozinak was the first underclassman to ever win the award. This year he  continued that leadership and caught the attention of several D1 schools. Ultimately, Lozinak chose Morehead State University. “My parents and I visited the school. We loved the campus. The coaches were great and made it clear that I could be an impact arm early on. Overall, it’s just a great fit and I couldn’t be more excited”. Morehead State competes in the Ohio Valley conference and is located in Morehead, KY. Lozinak will join fellow teammate, Bryce Hensor, at MSU, as well as US Elite alum, Niko Hulsizer.

Lozinak lead the US Elite/Majestic this summer on the mound and will finish this fall with his team. At 6’5”/210 and very projectable, Lozinak is a legitimate pro prospect and could get drafted in next year’s draft. His last outing will be in Jupiter, FL at the Perfect Game World Championships Oct. 20-24. “Will is the kid you give the ball to when you really want to win a game. You always know what you’re going to get with Will. He’s going to compete his butt off and he’ll will (no pun intended) his team to win the game. I’ve seen it so many times. He’s a fierce competitor”.

Lozinak was quick to point out that it took a team effort to earn a D1 scholarship, “My family has been very supportive of my dream to play in college. They have driven me, or flown me, all over the country just to help me do what I love to do. I’m very grateful to my parents. I also want to thank Coach Helsel, Coach Brisbin and the entire US Elite organization. Everyone has been so supportive. Coach Phillips has really helped me, too. It really does take a village to get this kind of thing done”.
