Year you started with Koa?

I was with Koa during the summer of 2017 and am coming back for the summer of 2019.

Playing Career:

I was a 4-year varsity baseball player at Wilde Lake High School in Columbia, Maryland. I also played for the state champion Columbia Reds summer baseball team. I began my college playing career at CCBC Catonsville. After 2 years at Catonsville, I transferred to Wesley College, a division 3 school located in Delaware.

Coaching Career:

After playing college baseball I returned to CCBC Catonsville where I was a volunteer assistant coach. After 2 years of being a volunteer assistant, I became the head baseball coach at Chapelgate Christian Academy. I was the head coach at Chapelgate for 3 years. Chapelgate is a member of the MIAA C Conference and in 2013 we won the MIAA C Conference championship. After winning at the high school level, I returned to CCBC Catonsville where I have been the assistant coach since the fall of 2013. Over the years I have done private lessons and have also worked for summer baseball camps coaching kids ranging in age.

What motivates you?

 

Pure love of the game. I loved playing baseball and I love it even more as a coach. There is a right way and a wrong way to play baseball. I am about working hard and playing the game the way it is supposed to be played. Giving players the coaching necessary to better their game is what I am about. I never stop learning the valuable lessons the game teaches me.

 

Local connection:

I currently work for the Howard County Public School System at Atholton High School. I grew up in Columbia and know several high school and college coaches. I have recruited locally and out of state looking for players who can play baseball at the college level.

Fun Fact:

I like being a college baseball coach. I think I am a better coach than I was a player. I always knew what I had to do to be successful on the baseball field but was not always athletic enough to get the job done. I think the game better than I ever played it.
