“This past off season I worked with MACH 1 and Dr. Tyler White to prepare for my college season. Dr. White helped me gain more mobility in my hips through trying to change my biomechanics. This was a huge help because in 2016 I had surgery on both hips. I worked with Dr. White two days a week for about 2-3 months. After the first couple weeks I could feel a noticeable difference in the way I felt and recovered.
During my 3 months in the MACH 1 program, I gained some velocity and I gained arm strength. In addition Andy helped me cleanup my mechanics on the mound, as well as help me with mobility and flexibility through the med ball drills and belts we use while throwing. The program helped me gain more control, which has limited my walks, while I’ve seen my strikeouts go up compared to last year. The Mach 1 program also prepared me for the beginning of the season there wasn’t that time in the beginning where I didn’t feel right, I felt like I was already a couple weeks in with my command and velocity. Currently I have a 3.23 ERA, 40 K’s, 34.2 innings, and only 8 walks.”
