HI! My name is Cody Baer and I am a 6’8 stretch 4, from Peoria, Illinois. I am a very hard worker on and off the court. I am in the gym as much as possible, putting up shots, working with a shooting coach, working on my footwork, ball handling and trying to improve my overall game. I am also working with a strength coach to help me become quicker, stronger, and more balanced. I have been playing basketball since I was 4 years old and playing travel basketball since 3rd grade. I am a great ball handler and being so tall, I can see court extremely well. I have been the starting point guard since I’ve started playing but with my new height, I am now playing a stretch 4 and power forward. I love being down low and banging with the big's but also like stepping out and shooting the three. I am team player who can score in transition, quick jumper or driving down the lane but always looking to pass to my teammate who is open to score.
I have also been running track since 5th grade. I have gone to state three times. I run the 400, 4x400, 4x200, and do the high jump with a personal best of 6'2, so far.
I not only work hard on the court but off the court as well. I take my grades very seriously and have a 3.8/4.0 GPA. I am a team player and I am looking for a college that is a good fit and that I can make a big contribution early in my career.
