I have been coaching or instructing or around the game for 20 plus years in a variety of programs from American Legion to youth recreational and travel teams to college summer leagues. Currently I coach a US Elite summer team in addition to my high school coaching position. After graduating from UK with a master's in Sport Management, I worked in professional baseball for the Atlanta Braves, served as the GM of the Lexington Hustlers, a summer collegiate team and also served as a game tracker and Associate Scout for the Toronto Blue Jays on the scouting side. Finally, I was also an instructor for Doyle Baseball Academy.
One of my proudest achievements is starting a Miracle League in Lexington, KY as well to allow children with special-needs to play baseball.
As a player, I was a 4 year starter as a 2b for Bellarmine University in Louisville, KY.
I am a strong believer in focusing on player development and using the summer to help players improve. The game should be fun but also played the right way. I am continually learning from other coaches and instructors to learn more about the game and to stay current on philosophies and the latest coaching techniques.
In the last 4 years as at Woodford County High School our coaching staff has sent 10 players to the college ranks from a program that rosters around 30 players a year with 4-5 more expected to sign this year. In addition our 2018 team set the school record for runs scored in a season and has three straight 20+ win seasons.
