Podcast: Taking the JUCO Route and Player Development with Coach Bomber

Today we’re going to sit down with Coach “Bomber” from powerhouse JUCO, Sacramento City Community College on the West Coast. We are going to explore what it means to enroll in a junior college program instead of heading straight into a 4-year school, among other topics. JUCO could be a great option for many high school athletes for a variety of reasons and this podcast is a great listen on the topic.

This past year, Coach “Bomber” began his 18th season as the pitching coach / recruiting coordinator at Sac City and he is pretty much an institution on the West Coast at this point . Since coming to Sac City, 49 pitchers have transferred to NCAA Division 1 universities, 17 have signed professional contracts, and 4 have reached the Major Leagues. He is responsible for all aspects of the pitching staff development and coordinates the program’s recruiting process.

He began his collegiate coaching career in 1996 at Eastern Kentucky University. At EKU, he was responsible for the development of the pitching staff and coordinated all their recruiting efforts. He has also spent the last three summers assisting USA Baseball with the selection of the 18U national team.

He has a BA from Sonoma State in Business Administration and a Master’s degree in physical education from Eastern Kentucky University (which makes a lot of sense to me, we’ll get into that more a bit later).
