Over the past 16 months, I have had the privilege to get to know Palmer and coach him in Varsity Baseball in which he has excelled. Based on my experience with Palmer, I can say without the shadow of a doubt that he is one of the most naturally talented and hardworking athletes with whom I have had the opportunity to coach. He truly exemplifies what a coach looks for in a representative of his program, the school, the community, and the game of baseball.Palmer is very mature for his age and he approaches baseball with an astute sense of passion. He processes constructive criticism well and is always willing to go the extra mile in order to take his craft as a college level hitter and middle infielder to the highest level possible. His skills on the field are highly developed and he has an astute attention to detail. All in all, Palmer is an incredibly well rounded student-athlete who has found a way to balance all of the aspects of the playing the game of baseball and what it takes to excel on the field, in the classroom, and in the community with apparent ease.
