Welcome to Colorado Recruits

One Team

Our Philosophy

Our program was founded on the belief that there is a great need in Colorado to teach young men how to play the game of baseball correctly and more importantly how to prepare them for life.  The goal of our program is to honor Christ through all of our actions on and off the field, play the best competition possible across the country, and earn the respect of our adversaries through fierce competition and relentless effort displayed on the field along with respect for all those we encounter.  As Craig has said many times; “Action builds faith" and our program strives to exemplify this in how we play the game.  Our goal is to field one of the very best baseball teams in the state every year.

Craig and I both were blessed to play baseball at a high level and thoroughly enjoy coaching and teaching all that we have learned over several decades of experience.  We will expect the boys to compete and give 100% at all times both mentally and physically and have fun doing it.  This is the greatest game ever played and the love of the game truly needs to be developed to get the most out of each players ability.  Our goal is to be the best team in the state both on and off the field because of how we play and approach the game.
