Jacob Blunt- (2013 Bonita High School) An integral part in their attempt to repeat as League and CIF Champions.  Jacob has been attending our clinics since his sophomore year and has developed into one of the finest catchers in the area.   He was recruited and offered scholarships by a good number of competitive college programs and he played in  Iowa at Muscatine Community College and continued on to lead Clarke University to the NAIA World Series in 2016 and almost repeated there in 2017.

Mark Lindsay-  Bonita High School, class of 2011.  Mark attended our catching clinics just as we were getting off the ground in 2010.  He put in the extra work, investing time on the weekends to better himself as a Catcher.  He comes from a great high school program and a great family, which have influenced his strong character, work ethic, and coachability.  Mark was offered a scholarship to San Francisco State University, where he earned All-Conference and Freshman Conference player of the year for his consistent performance in the 2012 season.  We are truly proud of Mark and are blessed to have also have him as an instructor.  Click the link below to learn more about Mark’s collegiate success.

Mark is played three seasons professionally with the San Rafael Pacifics in northern CA, and has been coaching collegiately at the NCAA Div. III and currently Div. II level since 2018 and continues to return as a dependable instructor for NLCA.

Kevin Hindes- Attended Damien High School, class of 2012.  Kevin is currently a student-athlete at Redlands University, and will be competing for playing time once again.  Kevin has truly matured and committed his defensive and offensive skills with us the past few years.
