Would you consider a junior college?  Yes

What do you want a college coach who is reading this to know about you?  Baseball is important to me.  I have been involved in baseball since I was five years old, including participation in training programs, camps, showcases and on teams.  Most recently I have participated in the Prospect Watch Pre Draft ID Camp (September 13, 2008), the Appalachian State University Fall Showcase Camp (October 18, 2008), and the Blue Grey Classic National Battle of the States III (October 23-26, 2008).  I am also registered to participate in the Diamond Prospects Unsigned Senior Showcase (November 8-9, 2008), the UNC-Charlotte Fall Showcase Camp (November 15-16, 2008), and the Clemson University Specialty Camp for pitchers (December 13-14, 2008).  I continue to train weekly with Jason Flach at The Strike Zone in Greer, South Carolina.  I can play (and have played) all positions on the baseball field.  It has always been my goal to play baseball in college.
