A graduate of CBC HS in 2003 Brad was a multi-sport athlete playing baseball and basketball. Upon graduation, he went on a baseball scholarship to Quincy University in Illinois where he received all-conference honors all three years and was First Team all-Region and an All-American as a Junior.
Drafted twice, in 2005 by the Houston Astros in the 31st round and again in 2006 by the Florida Marlins in the 12th round. He played for 6 years including two at AAA New Orleans before retiring after an arm injury.
For more than a decade Brad has been a private pitching instructor in the St. Louis area and for the past 5 he has been a strength coach, owning his own business. He has worked hundreds of athletes from the high school, college, and professional ranks. He has also helped coach with Bishop DuBourg High School during their state championship season as well as Webster University and St. Mary’s High School.
In the weight room, Brad has almost 20 years experience on both sides of the equation, as a coach and a client. Having been an athlete for most of his life he has had access to some world class coaching. These opportunities to learn from the best in the business have helped him formulate his personal philosophies and create the foundation for his career as a strength coach.
“My unique perspective, having been a client and a coach, allows me to see all sides of the equation. I know what works to be motivated and pushed as an athlete as well as what needs to be done as your coach. Having been a client allows me to understand the day to day struggles real people go through and how to help push through the tougher days!”
