Why I coach at East Coast?
I am excited to begin my first season coaching at East Coast Sox. I look forward to sharing what I have learned over the past years with the players I am fortunate enough to be associated with. I am also looking forward to learning from the amazing coaches and support staff at East Coast.
I am definitely looking forward to the Christian atmosphere at East Coast. I feel the the largest missing component of sports in general is the lack of Christian leadership from coaches.
Not every player that we come into contact with as coaches will be fortunate enough to play baseball in college or beyond. The odds are greater however that they become husbands, fathers, neighbors, business owners, employees, etc.
That’s why I feel that it’s important now more than ever for each player to be in an atmosphere that will help strengthen their walk with Christ.
I am very thankful that East Coast Sox provides not only the right atmosphere for each player to grow and develop as athletes, but to also grow and develop into fine Christian men.
I am honored and excited to begin my first season with such an amazing organization.
GO SOX !!!
