Kipp is one of the brightest kids that I’ve ever had the pleasure of coaching.  A kid that I have never seen without a smile.  He is a great Team leader , he leads by example, and knows exactly when and how to confront difficult situations as a 12 year old.  He is a great product of wonderful parenting, and he demonstrates it on the field, at school, and in his baseball. Kipp is a young man that will be very successful in life, and he can already at the age of 12 be considered a MLB prospect with all his recognition at the National Level.  As an 11 year old Kipp made the South East Team USA prospect team, and is going on 4 years in a row recognized as one of the Best Travel ball catchers in the Country. Being very coach-able is one of his best attributes, and the ability to make adjustments fast is his greatest strength as a player. I feel that the Power-Showcase will be another great experience for Kipp, which will allow him to see where he stands as a player.  The mind set established from experiences like this makes players like Kipp develop new goals impacting his future in baseball. – Coach Eddie Gonzalez PTI Maniacs


I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Kipp. Kipp is a math student of mine in sixth grade at Eisenhower Middle School. I have also had the pleasure of coaching Kipp on the track and field team. During this time, I learned a great deal about Kipp and his abilities, and I know he will do extremely well with any opportunity he is awarded.

Kipp is a model student for others, as well as a disciplined athlete. Kipp earned an A for the first nine weeks in an honors math class. While on the track team, Kipp was the only sixth grader on the boy’s team to qualify for our cluster meet. This is a huge accomplishment.
