It is my pleasure to recommend Derek Kasperzyk.  He is a gifted baseball player, a strong student, and model citizen in our school community.  He is an extraordinarily talented athlete, blending speed, coordination, and agility with impressive baseball skills, smarts, and competitive nature.  He is defensively versatile and can play the infield and outfield with excellent result. While he is a gifted player in all aspects of the game, his most notable talent is speed.  He can change a game with his quickness and base running instincts.  He was a key asset on two championship teams at Avon Old Farms over the past two seasons, and it was a common occurrence that Derek would get on base, and immediately advance a base or two because of his ability to run.  He puts pressure of opposing teams, and is a real asset as an offensive player. Outside of baseball, Derek is a high achieving student, who combines impressive ability with remarkable diligence.  He has earned a position on the honors list at Avon Old Farms in each of the marking periods since his freshman year.  However, Derek’s positive presence is not limited to the classroom and the athletic field; he is also one of the leading citizens in our school community.  He has served on our student council since his freshman year, and is a leader in our residential life program as well.  His community engagement is special, and he is a forceful leader in all aspects of school life.– Rob Dowling Baseball Coach / Academic Dean  Avon Old Farms
Derek Kasperzyk is a 5’10” infielder/outfielder with exceptional abilities. Defensively he is quick to the ball both as an infielder and an outfielder. He reads the ball well, takes excellent routes to the ball and is a plus defender. His arm strength is 83-85 from the outfield and infield. As a hitter Derek has plus power and is a gap to gap hitter. He is balanced and provides great weight transfer after separation. He bunts well and is a game changer on the bases. He runs a 6.6 60 yard and also has quick first step and is the consummate base-stealer.Mike McGuire
