WATCH GARRETT’S HIGHLIGHT VIDEO

 

 Garrett is a senior at Casady School in Oklahoma City. Casady is a college preparatory school which highly values academic preparation for the rigors of college coursework and prepares students with the skills and knowledge as the foundation for success. In addition, Casady believes competitive athletics is central to the development of leadership and teamwork as well as self-confidence and respect for others.

Garrett competes in baseball and boys’ volleyball for the Cyclones. He also is a vital participant in strings as part of the Casady orchestra. Garrett’s grades are in the high “B” range overall.

I have coached Garrett the past three seasons in varsity baseball. He is a catcher “by trade” but continues to learn the nuances of playing three infield positions and pitching. Garrett’s fundamentals behind the plate have improved greatly in three seasons…both in receiving the baseball and throwing the baseball. He is quickly learning to use his legs and body as a receiver…and his release to second base has vastly improved. Perhaps Garrett’s greatest strength is his offensive prowess and potential. He is aggressive at the plate, has a keen eye for the strike zone, makes solid contact and is learning to drive the baseball. Garrett’s greatest strengths are his passion for the game, his eye-hand coordination and his work ethic.

I believe that there are two specific areas that Garrett needs to improve…1) foot speed and 2) strength and conditioning. As his fundamental specific skills improve I believe Garrett would enhance his overall performance with marked improvement in “straight away” speed and physical strength. Garrett knows this and has included structured workouts in these areas as part of his conditioning regime.

I look forward to continue working with Garrett during his senior season. He is taking a real leadership role on our team as captain for 2015 and he is also the returning MVP from last season.  His experience competing in Perfect Game Showcases, Perfect Game Tournaments Showball Mega Camps and various college preparation skill camps has not only enhanced his skills and self-confidence, it has heightened all expectations and prepared him to achieve success at the appropriate skill level.
