Verse to live by:
Proverbs 3:3-4 - Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
“There's a blessing in every lesson."
Coaching Role Model:
I loved all the coaches I've played for and I’ve taken things I’ve learned from playing under them and now transitioned that into my own style in the hope that I am being a positive role model to all athletes.
Favorite Part of Coaching:
I enjoy seeing the kids grow as a family on and off the field. I love seeing the kids grow into young men down the road. I love teaching kids that through baseball they can build great work ethic make positive influence on others. I enjoy teaching young men how to take the classroom as serious as there at bats.
