"I Have played a large roll in the recruiting process of many of the older athletes I work with. I have personal relationships with coaches from over 50 college programs. Scouting for Perfect Game has allowed me to see the recruiting process of baseball through a completely different lens. The majority of high-level high school players want to have an opportunity to play at the next level but might not necessarily know the best route to take while pursuing these endeavors."
