I met Coach Thomas when his son and I played on the same Perfect Game team in Ft Myers FL. He said he really liked the way that I pitched. He spoke with my parents several times during that week and offered me a spot to play for the Vipers. Although I lived in Hoover AL, my parents found a way to make it work for me to play for the Vipers the following summer. During the summer of 2017 Coach Thomas had us playing in a lot of showcase tournaments. Coach made sure to reach out to coaches that would be in attendance and to tell them what day I would be pitching. Towards the end of the summer I was contacted by Lipscomb University and I took a visit between tournaments. They offered me a scholarship at the end of my visit. My parents and I feel that this scholarship would not have been possible without Coach Thomas and the Vipers Baseball Team.
