Jackson Boydston – February 2020

Jackson is a young man who is not only a joy to work with every week but is also extremely coachable. Those traits have allowed him to develop in all facets of his game this month. His hard work and determination to be great at everything we work on is what has led him to the all-around improvements of his game. Which I believe is going to translate to a very successful and enjoyable baseball season for him. I couldn’t be more thankful and proud to work with such a great kid and ballplayer.

Payton Albertson

Payton Albertson – December 2019

Payton Albertson is a Sohpomore thrower at Weiser HS. Payton’s primary focus is centered around being a “complete pitcher” and on-ramping towards the spring season. He is a hi-ceiling athlete and fast becoming a student of the pitcher position. In baseball, hitting is about “timing”. Pitching is about disrupting that timing. Payton’s early comprehension of effective velocity concepts (what a hitter sees) sets him apart especially as a younger HS thrower. His metrics from our last formal FB Command bullpen were impressive at this point in the off-season (almost equal arm and glove side strike %’s with elevated as an opportunity). It is special when a thrower can chase their upward ceiling with determination and focus.
