Advice to Other Athletes: “Get all your workouts in, go to yoga and never stop curling.”

“The sum of what Rhett is as a person is summed up with his advice above.  Rhett is a fun-loving, hard nosed young man that NEVER missed a workout.  Driving over an hour to get to us could easily be an excuse but in two years I never once heard it.  Rhett will admit that he is not he most talented athlete, but you would be hard pressed to find someone that has worked harder than him to get where he is today.  Every bit of Rhett’s accomplishments have been earned, nothing has been given to him.  It is that hard nosed mentality that I know will carry Rhett a long way in life.  We’re excited that he has chosen to further his education and baseball career at Baker University and know that he will push his teammates to be the best that they can!”

Advice to Other Athletes: “The one thing you can always control is your work ethic.  Never let anyone outwork you.”

“Being the younger brother is tough, especially when it comes to your older brother being very successful.  You have to create your own self, for others to see you in your own image.  Zach has done such an amazing job with that.  He is a great self-motivator, taking any challenge put in front of him and attacking it until it is accomplished.  Zach loves the negative comments from others, using it as fuel for his motivation.  As a coach it is a privilege to work with Zach as you know that the intent you want in his program will be re-created every day.  I could not be more happy for Zach to be joining his brother Nathan at the University of Evansville next year to further his education and baseball career.  I look forward to seeing these brothers continue to push each other to be their best for years to come!”

Favorite Part of Training at PSP3Always knowing that I will get a warm welcome from the coaches when I walk in the door

Advice to Other Athletes: “Talent will get you far but hard work and persistence will get your further.”

“The word leader is something that immediately comes to mind when you think of Kett.  Kett is the guy that is always early, works hard in silence, ask questions and is always thankful for those that are in his life.  He is the guy that runs optional workouts for his baseball team, the guy that shows up before practice/game to get a 30 minute mobility program in.  Kett had an unfortunate injury during his high school career, something that could have easily ended his playing days.  But that’s not Kett.  He worked hard in physical therapy and with us in helping him get back and even beyond where he was before.  That type of mentality to me is the definition of mental toughness.  It is due to that hard work that Kett has relight the fire for his passion in baseball and looks forward to playing in college!  I have no doubt that whichever school he picks will be getting one amazing young man.”

“Tim is one of those athletes that you do not have to worry about.  He’s a no nonsense, down to work, humble young man.  Though very quiet Tim is an extremely smart kid, someone who analyzes the game and the weight room more than a lot of athletes.  It is that laser focus that allows for him to make big strides in the weight room and on the field.  In the past two years we have seen tremendous growth out of Tim, not only in his strength but also his speed.  Heading down to Allen County Tim knows that he has to compete every day if he wants to play, but that will not be an issue at all.  He is fierce competitor that will push those around him to get better.  We wish Tim the best as he joins PSP3 family members Clayton Hale and Zach Adams down in Iola!”
