Team Outlook: 2023 Team

 

New Team…New Look… This 2023 squad builds off the competitive summer run they had last season, into this 2022 summer season. This year’s squad is led by Coach Ryan Hill, who enters his 4th year with us. Last year when we featured this group we mentioned words like “hard-nosed, scrappy, etc.” Blend that in with more athleticism, and a blend of arms, and we create a successful recipe for the group. If any college coaches are looking for guys with grit, and high-academic student-athletes, look no further than this team. Here’s the breakdown of the roster & schedule.

Team Outlook: 2023 National

Talk about the will to win… This group was one of the most talented groups we have had in our program, and it showed when they finished their strong summer season with a record 29-9-3. They were also ranked #67 nationally & 18th regionally according to Perfect Game. Leading the 2023 National groups once again is Coach Josh Taylor, who enters his 3rd year with this group. The team features 2 College Commits with several more on the way after the successful spring campaigns these young men have had. The unique part with this is this group has gotten even stronger with the new additions on the mound, and at the plate. Let’s just say in other words, we suggest you circle this group as a team to follow all summer long. Here’s the breakdown of the roster & schedule.

Wins over teams such as Canes American (WWBA 2020), FTB Giants Scout Team (WWBA Underclass Championships 2020), and Hitters 2022 Navy (ABC’s Invite 2021).
