Physical: Solid blend of athleticism and high level strength in a well put together 5-foot-10, 180-pound frame. 7.13 runner in the 60-yard dash. Siena Commit. 

Offensively: RHH. Balanced, slightly open stance with loose hands at the ear with some rhythm in the setup. Utilized a leg-hang to initiate a fluid and direct, slightly uphill bat path through the hitting zone with lift through contact. Generated a middle of the field approach with occasional favoritism towards the LCF gap, creating natural backspin to all fields. The hands got to extension with authority, as struck the ball out over the plate with extra whip in the barrel using long levers in the frame. Hit into a stiff front side with adjustability evidenced by multiple extra base hits in game action at the NY State Games. Recorded a top of 96 mph bat-exit velocity per Trackman Baseball with a max distance of 349 feet. 

Defensively: The primary outfielder featured solid straight line speed in order to go and get the baseball in the air for his pitchers. Showed feel for the “dropstep” technique in either direction and got downhill and through the baseball with a low center of gravity on the approach. Quick catch and throw technique allowed for a whippy and accurate, high ¾ slot from his position. OF - 86 mph

A physical 5-foot-9, 180 pounds. Ran a 7.10 in the 60 yard dash and ran a 3.84 home to first. Offensively- Stands in the box with a slightly open stance. Loose hands, slight leg kick and stride forward towards the pitcher. Direct path to the baseball. Flat barrel through the hitting zone. Gets full extension after the point of contact. Balanced throughout his swing. Top exit velocity 88 MPH. Defensively- Active Footwork. An aggressive approach to the baseball. Stays under control. Fields the ball slightly off - center. Uses his active footwork and a crow-hop to gain momentum on throws to the plate. Top throwing velocity 84 MPH. The 2021 graduate is a must follow.
