Hello my name is Colt Chrestman. I was born in Tupelo, MS, but I was raised in Starkville, MS. I attended high school at Starkville Academy, where I was a multisport athlete. I had several offers for football and baseball both, but decided to dedicate all my time in college on baseball. I committed to Northeast Mississippi Community College for baseball, where I played two years as the starting centerfielder. I had several offers from 4-year schools but was blessed with the opportunity to continue my career after junior college when the University of North Alabama offered me. I have been at UNA the past two years, and plan to graduate in the spring of 2020. I plan to be a college coach and I am looking forward to starting my career.
What it means to me and why I am involved.
East Coast is a high school baseball prospect organization, but it is so much more than that. East Coast is more like a family than just an organization. East Coast was the first prospect team I ever played on and I remember that summer like it was yesterday. I remember the teammates I had that turned into friends, the coaches I had that made permanent impacts on my career, and the awesome experiences I had to this day. It was obvious that the organization cared for us as players, but also as young men.
I am a new coach just getting started in this field. I knew there was no better place to start my career. I know that East Coast was one of the most well-known organizations in the south, and I want to learn how to become a good coach from them just like I learned how to become a good player. I am here to develop young men to the best of my ability, and hopefully be developed by them as well. East Coast molded me into the type of player I am today and I am looking forward to molding young men as well.
