WATCH NICHOLAS’S 10th PSC HIGHLIGHT VIDEO

I have had the privilege of coaching Nicholas Wright as a part of the Renegades Elite Athletic Club for the last three years. During this time, Nicholas has continued to expand on his legend of exceptional power by combining outstanding leadership skills on the field, an enhanced commitment to practice, and a newfound patience that has allowed him to become a truly complete player.Nicholas has hit several jaw-dropping, tape measure home runs in the years that I have coached him. At every event our team attends, people love to watch Nicholas do the impossible with his unmatched power:

  • Play as an 11 year old on a 300 foot field – Bomb!
  • Ground Rules before the game with the umpire saying “no need to discuss the
    long grass deep in left field because no one has ever hit it there” – oops, home run
  • To the finals at the 2014 Diamond Nation Home Run Contest-
    He was signing autographs at the end of his fireworks display!

His power is legendary in our region and I am excited to see him take this to the National level at the Power Showcase! His understanding the importance of patience and his teammates has enabled him to combine that raw power with an increased on-base percentage, average, and the intangible “clutch hitting” to make him a truly feared hitter and a truly great teammate and leader.

Good Luck to Nicholas in the POWER SHOWCASE and congratulations to the directors for selecting him to be a part of the event. You are in for a great show!

It has been a true pleasure coaching Nicholas the last couple years. He is a great player and an even better young man. He has developed into a team leader on and off the field. With his continued hard work ethic, Nicholas is truly becoming a 5-tool player. His offensive abilities have been amazing. He not only hits for average, but displays power that is unheard of at this age level. He has hit balls 350 feet this year that are just jaw dropping and make you say wow! He also is a great baserunner swiping 23 bases on the year. Defensively, Nicholas has become a well-rounded player with the ability to play numerous positions in the field. His primary position this year was shortstop, where he showed great range, soft hands and a cannon for an arm. He also has played catcher, where he truly shut down the other teams running game.

In short, Nicholas is a great young man, player and teammate. He has so much potential that with his continued hard work the sky is the limit for him. I truly look forward to watching his development the next couple years.

Good Luck to Nicholas in the POWER SHOWCASE
