Centerville's Brian Mroz is One to Watch

Brian Mroz

Brian Mroz
, a two-way player from Centerville High School has been garnering a lot of college coaches’ attention.  The 5’11 and 160 pound right handed Junior is getting looks as both a pitcher and outfielder.

He recently attended a Silver Spikes prospect clinic in Dublin.  Mroz says “The clinic was helpful. It was nice to see different coaches’ views on certain mechanics for outfield and pitching. I enjoyed showing the coaches my abilities and getting their input on some corrections I could make.”

After attending the camp, Brian is actively being recruited by a long list of Division 1 schools, such as: Akron, Michigan, Purdue, Tennessee Tech, Binghamton, Bucknell, Ball State, Western Kentucky, and Wright State.

Mroz is hoping to make an early commitment prior to the 2013 season.  When making a decision he states “I would like to play at a program that has a good history of winning and a team where I can come in and play early.”

He hopes to take his 3.39 GPA to college that, “has fun but still plays hard and wants to win.”

His strong arm is what has attracted coaches’ attention.  His outfield velocity has been clocked as high as 86 mph.  However, Brian believes “I think my biggest strength as a player is my pitching.”

On the mound, the right hander shows quick arm action and command of a heavy 84-86 mph fastball. His curveball, which sits at 72-74 mph, shows sharp, 11/5 break.

During the summer, Brian plays for the 17U Dayton Classics. He has earned an invitation to the Top Prospect Games on June 4th and 5th in Dayton.
