Due to my public school teaching job, I only have time to work with a few pitching students.  In spite of this small roster, my pitching students have done very well at the high school level.  The following former and current FBA students are such notables.  They have received well-deserved high school honors. Their achievements are a testament to the impact that past and current coaches have had on them, as well as the sacrifices that their parents have made to support their fastpitch activities. But above all, accolades received are a result of the commitment, determination and passion that these young ladies have for their sport.  I am truly thankful for the opportunity to know them and to assist or have assisted with their pitching development.  And I am so proud of their accomplishments.
