Drake is very athletic, with quick hands at the plate, quality eye-hand coordination, very knowledgeable offensively and defensively, for he knows who he is at this age; a consistent worker and truly understands one must be married into ‘The Process’ of Development and not solely into the Wins and Losses of competition.

Drake is consistent with his investment to improve while displaying high respect towards the game.

It’s very difficult to project kids at the beginning of their teenage years, but observing him for quiet sometime now, I feel confident to say his passion is at the bar where athletes need to be with dedication and work ethic.

Drake’s future is bright and his support group understands what patience it takes to get to where he is heading as he grows stronger, gets more explosive, and progresses.

Drake is a player I always look forward to training each week, for he is in a group of the top 3 baseball players within his age bracket from Southeast, Texas.

I have trained Drake since he was 6 years old. Drake is one of the hardest working kids I have ever coached. He is one of the best catchers at 13 in the state of Texas. He is very athletic, and has a plus strong arm. I look for great things in the future from Drake.

I have had the honor and privilege to coach Drake this last year and He has turned into a very good player. He has very good bat speed and can hit the ball to all fields. He is also a pitcher and has velocity that tops out at 76-77 and lives at 72-73.  In my professional opinion, Drake has the tools and ability to become a highly recruited catcher. He has really good actions as a catcher with an accurate and PLUS arm. His throws have really good carry and has a PLUS arm from behind the plate. He is not only a great baseball player but more importantly he is a wonderful and respectful young man.
