How long have you been with Diamond Pro?

3 years

How has Diamond Pro helped you get to where you are today?

DP coaches and the offseason training was extremely important to my development. Alos, gave me an opportunity to play a high level of baseball against some of the best talent in the Northeast. Was also able to be showcased in front of a lot of college scouts and coaches.

Any advice to the younger kids in our program?

Stick to your plan, don’t let anyone stand in your way or tell you that you can’t do it. Be coachable and work hard every day.

What made you choose your school?

I chose Niagara County Community College because of the coaching staff and the program’s success in getting their players to the larger D1 schools in the south (where I want to go). NCCC has been a nationally ranked program the past few years which increases the amount of exposure for me and my teammates on the national stage. But most importantly the ability to prepare me to play at the next level, allow me the chance to come in and pitch right away as a freshman and contribute to the team’s success.

What are you most looking forward to about college baseball?

The competition, the ability for me to get bigger, stronger, and more mature. To work hard with my coaching staff to improve my craft as a pitcher.
