Steve Sakosits | Head Coach | Baseball | Earlham College

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

At Earlham we look for the total student-athlete. That is a person who academically and athletically has goals to be the best at both avenues. Determination and drive are aspects we like to see these young men have as they strive to become truly great at both during their time at EC.


Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

Earlham College is a top Liberal Arts college in the country, so the standards to get into EC is not an easy task. However, we have had a few young men that didn’t come in as the strongest high school students, but once they came into our program and understood the expectations not only in the classroom but on the playing field they exceeded even their own expectations.
