Personal Statement

Dear Coaches,

I started playing baseball when I was 4 years old. Although I was introduced to a multitude of sports, as I grew older, baseball became my passion. During my playing time with Rec Ball, Little League, Middle School, High School and Travel Ball, my primary positions were always in the outfield and infield. During the summer before my senior year of high school, it was discovered that I had a talent to pitch. I was encouraged to participate in a PBR Showcase and displayed some strong velocity, along with the ability to throw some good off speed and breaking balls. I got to pitch in a few Perfect Game tournaments and had a top velocity of 92 mph. That got some attention that I never expected.


COVID-19 made the entire recruiting process tough. As a new pitcher, and with the restrictions set in place for campus and coaches visits, I did my best to send video, email, train, and play as much as possible. In the end, I committed to a D1 school that I thought checked all of my boxes. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to visit the campus in person until late June. After much thought and many conversations with my parents, coaches, friends, and people I consider mentors, I decided to withdraw my commitment after attending orientation and determining that outside of baseball, the school was not a good fit for me. As an athlete, it was a heartbreaking decision to make but in my heart, I know that it was the best decision for me and my family.


I know it’s a delicate balance between athletics and academics and I pride myself in being able to accomplish both. I will continue to train rigorously to develop my pitching skills and work hard in the classroom to maintain my grades. 


I had a great summer pitching for the BC Athletics Blue in the Smoky Mountain Collegiate League at the University of Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium. BC Athletics is coached by former MLB player, Brett Carroll. I have previously trained on my own at Pro Hitting Baseball, which is run by the current hitting coach for the Toronto Blue Jays, Guillermo Martinez and I am now training with Coach Brian Hochever at Diamond Baseball Academy.


My college baseball path may have suddenly changed but I am thankful that I will be able to continue to play at the next level. After playing fall ball at Roane State, I was able to get recruited again and recently committed to Christian Brothers University. I am transferring right away and will be attending my next semester in January. I am fortunate for this wonderful opportunity to attend a 4 year institution to study and play baseball.



Sincerely,

Jake
