Good extension through ball, sometimes a bottom hand finish. Had a very good live round barreling everything. Bat speed plays better then 81 mph exit velo off tee.  Very solid behind the plate with pop times of 1.97, and effortless release. Good fundamentals framing and blocking. Ran a 4.29 home to first. Underrated player in our state.

Accurate on all throw downs with a 1.9-2.0 pop-time off a coach. Arm velocity behind the plate was 76 mph.  Makes catching look effortless. At the plate stands slightly opened and has a simple balanced stance with a short stride for timing. Short to the ball with good extension through the hitting zone.   He had a 81 MPH exit velocity and had line drive power up the middle through the infield. Catches with a lot of confidence.
