As we wrap up 2016, Prep Baseball Report Colorado is ready to hit the ground running for 2017 with two major events.  The Underclass Invitational event at Slammers South will take take place on January 29th. Over the coming weeks, PBR Colorado will introduce you to 2019 and 2020 players who have committed to this event.  Beginning our look is 2019, OF, Kellen Cox of Cherokee Trial High School.

PBR:  Describe yourself as a baseball player to those who have never seen you play:
Cox:  As a ball player I am someone who always hustles on and off the field, always supports teammates, and bring energy to the dugout when energy is lacking. I'm not afraid to go all out and lay out or try to make a game changing play. 

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? 
Cox:  My dream school is Oregon State 

PBR:  What are your best assets on and off the field at this point in your high school career?   
Cox:  On the field I have good power, and take great angles to the ball in the outfield. I also get good jumps on steals and dirt ball reads. As a pitcher I have a good changeup and pitch command

Off the field I am always someone who is in a good mood 

PBR:  What is the best baseball advice you have received and try to follow to this point in your career? 
Cox:  The best advice I have received is to never stop working even when things seem like they aren't improving as you would like them to be

PBR: What does your off-season routine look like to prepare for the upcoming season?
Cox:  In the offseason I work out with my team and individually 3-5 times a week. I hit at my clubs team cages at least 2 times a week, and go to a throwing program 3-4 times a week. 

PBR:  What are your superstitions or routines that go on during a season? 
Cox:  My biggest superstition is not stepping on the chalk line before a game. Other superstitions change season to season. 

PBR:  What are your goals for: 
This season:  My goals are to make my clubs team most competitive team, and have the best BA of all my teammates.
In 2 years:  My goal is to be playing for a D1 school
In 4 years:  My goal is to be starting for a D1 school and having good potential to get drafted
