About this pro

I teach kids the proper way to take care of their arms after pitching. As well as, the proper mechanics to ensure the arm health and maximize the potential of the player. I hope while working on these things it brings out the love of the game of baseball in these young athletes as much as I love this beautiful game.

I have been giving pitching lessons all over the Middle Tennessee and North Alabama areas. I take pride in helping each athlete improve and fall in love with the process.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I first ask the parents and the young athlete what their goals and what they want to obtain from the lessons.

Then I go throw the proper arm care routine of showing the student band workouts for warm-ups and later for strengthening to improve endurance and improve velocity.

Next will be a little long toss to loosen up the arm and check out the arm strength.

Followed by throwing a small bullpen to see what the student needs to work on more and what things we need to possibly tweak or improve. 

Lastly we sit down and go over everything we did, preferably with the parents or Guardian so we show what is going to be needed to keep progressing.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I played 5 years in college at Martin Methodist and also while in Graduate school at Alabama A&M. After college I played a little semi pro ball for a Nashville Based team for 5 years. 
But while I was in college I would give pitching lessons to kids back in my home county for extra money in the summer/off-seasons. Then it turned into working with a company called SkillZDr giving lessons for over 5 years as a certified pitching instructor.

How did you get started teaching?

I started by giving lessons to kids in my home county during my off-seasons to earn some extra money, and also to have someone to throw with to keep my arm in shape. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with kids that's ranged from 5 to 21 years old. The younger ones that hadn't reached player pitch I would work on just baseball fundamentals. But the older kids from player pitch to college I focus on pitching aspects and arm care.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Talk to them over the phone and ask them if hired what is your game plan to get me where I want to be in my game. What is your idea of arm care as well.
