Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?
Our first priority is the athlete has to be intelligent to gain Admission. Secondly, we want athletic student athletes with leadership abilities. We want athletes with great work ethics. Obviously we want them to be very skilled.
Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?
We had a player get drafted in the 17th round of the baseball draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks. This player excelled because he was the ultimate competitor. The bigger the stage the higher level he would perform at. He had two NCAA tournament wins for us and started a third game and left with a lead which we later won.
