Verse to live by:
Philippians 4:11-13 “I don’t say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
“It’s not the will to win that matters – everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.” Paul Bear Bryant
Coaching role model:
”I’ve learned a great deal about coaching and dealing with players from our coaching staff Darran Littlefield, Gregg Caylor and Jeff Culpepper. They are great strategists and truly care about our players and their future after baseball.”
Favorite part of coaching:
Watching our players realize their dreams of playing college baseball is a passion of mine. It’s so cool to see these young boys dedicate themselves at an early age, put in the work and then be rewarded as young men.
