I have been meaning to email you, but I’ve been so busy with finishing up my last semester and graduation! I just wanted to thank you for everything you have done for not only myself, but our entire team. We are hitting the ball harder and farther as a team and its been an amazing process from when we started working with you. I cannot believe how well this system has worked for me. Tim made a comment during the senior presentations between our last games, that he will not only remember me for hitting home runs, but for hitting home runs that average about 270 ft. That made me pretty happy. 🙂 The only sad part is that I wish I had more time, because you know how much of a threat I would be if I had two more years?!? I also wish I could have taken down Chelsea in the home run race. 😛 This is truely an amazing technique and I was SO happy to have learned it. You are really an amazing person and I wish you all the best.
