The Colorado Fall Prospect Games will be held October 1st and 2nd at Highlands Ranch High School.  Participants from the classes of 2020-2017 will participate in a pro-style workout and games for the PBR Colorado Staff.  Over the next few weeks we will introduce you to several of the participants, continuing our look is No. 69 2018 1B/OF, Zac Heisler of Pine Creek High School.

PBR:  Describe yourself as a baseball player to those who have never seen you play:
Heisler:  I really love the game and I think that shows when I play.  I’ve worked hard for several years so I can compete at the highest levels in my age group.  I can also hit the ball hard so I think people really like to watch that.

PBR:  What would be your dream school to play baseball at?  If you have already committed to play at the next level, why did you choose that particular school? 
Heisler:  I haven’t committed to a single school yet but I am leaning towards either the ACC or SEC. Mostly I want to feel like I can contribute to the baseball program but also develop as a student.  I currently have a 3.9 GPA and feel like the academic program is also a huge factor in my decision.

PBR:  What are your best assets on and off the field at this point in your high school career?   
Heisler:  My best asset on the field is my competitive nature.  I will do whatever I can to make the team successfully.  Off the field my work ethic is a great asset, I work with professional trainers 3 times a week to focusing on baseball specific workouts.  I am also a member of the National Honor Society and enjoy doing community service work.

PBR:  What is the best baseball advice you have received and try to follow to this point in your career.
Heisler:  I was at a baseball camp run by Coach House and he took us aside and told us that our habits are the things that will make or break us as baseball players.  He specifically talked about diet.  Since that day, I have been very careful about what I eat and focus on having good habits.

PBR: What does your off-season routine look like to prepare for the upcoming season?
Heisler:  During the summer, I worked out in the gym 5 times a week focusing on overall muscle strength.  As the Fall season began, I shifted to baseball specific workouts and some more focus on cardio workouts.  My plan for the winter is to work with a previous professional pitcher, and concentrate on my form and arm strength.

PBR:  What are your superstitions or routines that go on during a season? 
Heisler:  Before I get up to bat, I always rub a little dirt in my hands.  It’s a weird routine but it helps me relax.

PBR:  What are your goals for: 

This Season:  Win the State Championship, bat over .400 and have lower than a 2.0 ERA.  

Two Years:  Play for a Division I team and be a successful student.

Four Years:  Win the SEC/ACC championship!
