    Colin has been great his being lefthanded was just what my son needed. He has my son on the right path to becoming a complete pitcher. Colin is very knowledgeable and a great way of teaching that makes it easy to understand and do the what he wants. My son loves working with him.

    He was really good and he helped me a lot with my pitching mechanics and he had a lot of trust in me and always trusted me even when I didn’t believe in myself he knows how to break things down and help you out in what you are slacking on he keeps you focused but overall really cool coach and love working with him
