This will be Jared’s 7th season as the boys Varsity baseball coach at KCC.  Over the past seven years the program has enjoyed the addition of a new turf baseball field in partnership with the Jewish Community Center, has won Regional Championships, and appeared in the State Tournament the past two seasons.  In addition they have been able to send players on to college with scholarships and the opportunity to continue playing baseball at a high level.  Besides the on-field accomplishments perhaps Jared’s greatest joy has been able to afford young men a Christian environment through baseball and a chance for his players to learn life skills and lessons on the field that will help them later in life as they are faced with new challenges.

 

Jared gets his inspiration from watching other coaches inspire their players and instructing them about more than just the game they are playing.  He believes that we are all called as coaches to instill confidence, joy, and God’s love into the players we coach in order to help them become the young men and women God has called them to be.

 

Jared currently also severs as the school’s Student Engagement Coordinator and coaches 7th/8th grade boys basketball.
