- I know that we are still around six months away from the 2013 draft, but I had the opportunity to talk to one of 2014’s rising stars.
Klein Collins High School (Texas) RHP Jake Jarvis has already made a name for himself as a sophomore (0.91-ERA) while putting up an impressive scouting stat line for PG (88-90, 92 FB, 72-CB, 84-CH, 88-IF throw, 7.19-60). I asked him: “you’re a high school junior and this isn’t your year. What are you doing now to maximize your junior year so the phones start ringing this time next year.
Jake answer made sense: “This year is just like any other year it’s my year to play the ball I play. I have to work harder than everyone else and be a step ahead so I can throw harder, be faster, and be smarter at the plate (also plays 2B). I just want to play the game to the best of my ability and go as far as I can and I know I have to out work as hard as I can to do that.”
A sad story out of Gainsville, Florida.
