John is a very smart and talented baseball player that does a great job of managing a game from behind the plate. As a catcher, John works extremely hard and has very soft hands. He makes every pitcher look better and has a very quick release to second base. In the infield, John can play 3B and 2B. He has good actions and works through the baseball very well. On the mound, John throws from down under and over top and has a closer mentality. This gives him good arm side run on his fastball and gets a lot of ground ball outs. He has good sweeping slider that he can command and he uses this as his out pitch. Offensively, John is strong and competes every at bat. He is aggressive and knows how to work counts. As John gets stronger, he will have an opportunity to play this game at the next level as college coaches will be following him closely.

John has committed to play college baseball at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama.
