This year will be my nineteenth year of coaching youth baseball and my second as a US Elite coach. You can say I’m an old school teacher with a thirst for modern day player data. My number one priority has always been, and still is, player development. If you play for me, you’ll learn how the details matter. I’ll also expect you to play the game with energy, discipline, grit and integrity.
In addition to making you a better player on the field, my goal will be to inspire you and help you grow as a person. You’ll also learn to respect the game and everything it has to offer.
I feel like I’m uniquely qualified to help young players shine and reach their goals of having successful baseball careers beyond high school. You see, I was a walk-on player and four year starter at the University of Maryland. Not something that you often hear. I appreciate and understand the player who has to work just a bit harder than everyone else because I was that guy. And I can still remember the feeling I had making my college team.
My goal is to help players feel that same special feeling of earning a roster spot and being an everyday player. Lofty goals, but worth chasing.
When I’m not coaching, I love to spend time with my wife Karen and my three sons. My youngest son Will is a player in the US Elite organization.
