I was a 4-year collegiate baseball player at Oakton Community College and Rockford University. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education and minored in Coaching. I have coached at the High School (Freeport High School), Travel Ball (Fastball USA), American Legion (Elk Grove Post 690), and College level (Rock Valley College). I received Dean’s List honors as a senior and was honored as a Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Scholar. My favorite part about working for NCSA is being able to help student-athletes find a college home. When I am not working at NCSA, I like to go to Chicago and watch my favorite baseball team, The Chicago Cubs.
NCSA is something I wish I would have known about as a player. As a college coach, it was the start of every day at my office desk. NCSA changes lives, and I believe that it gives student-athletes the ability to chase their dreams. This job for me is so rewarding, and I look forward to connecting with parents and student-athletes every day. Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, I watched dozens of players with talent, and good grades end up not playing at the college level. I believe with the help of NCSA, these same players that never got the chance to play would be some of our best success stories. With that being said, if you are aspiring to play ball at the college level, NCSA couldn’t be a better first step for a family.
