When I think about the time invested into Bo’s program I think about where I was, to where I am, to where I’m going. I was introduced to the program through a friend and was invited to one of the classroom sessions. At that time, I was immediately taken back by the amount of baseball knowledge, wisdom, planning and energy that was being invested into the young men on the team. I saw this as a opportunity to develop myself beyond a baseball player. My biggest fear at that time was wasting my potential. My parents instilled in me that I would be able to accomplish great things in my life. As far as what to do and how to accomplish those goals, was inconclusive in my eyes.
Bo helped me create a path from where I was to where I wanted to be. He was also more than willing to walk that path with me. He helped me realize that if I remain passionate,focused and managed myself accordingly I could accomplish my goals.
This program also surrounded me with liked-minded individuals with a strong staff of not just coaches, but mentors as well.
Bo’s program is valuable, because it allowed me to use sports as a gateway to education, because if you can change a way a person thinks you can change their lives.
