Read Jordan’s Story

Russell Clark is a special player. Russell has been the starting varsity catcher since his freshman year. He hit .307 his freshman year and hit .429 his sophomore year. Defensively, Russell has thrown out 70% of the baserunners he’s faced. It’s no surprise that the team has played for the Western Pennsylvania championship and has advanced to the quarter and semi- finals of the state tournament the two years Russell’s been on varsity. Russell continues to get better and better every year. Russell has a unique combination of talent, hard work, and drive. Very few players have that kind of understanding at his age. Russell’s abilities that make him stand out are not only his athleticism, but an extremely strong arm, a short compact powerful stroke, and his understanding of the game. Russell can take over a game behind home plate. His teammates follow him as a leader because of his work ethic and desire. Russell has a special gift both physically and mentally to be the best. That is why Russell will be successful at the next level.
