My father, Greg Simmons, has been the head baseball coach at Charlotte Christian School in Charlotte, North Carolina for 27 years.
I grew up surrounded by baseball and coaches so from at a very young age I knew I wanted to be a coach.
I learned a lot of great things during my time at Wingate playing under some great coaches, especially head coach Jeff Gregory.
These coaches have helped mold my coaching philosophy into what it is today.
Simply by working with and listening to the coaching staff at Charlotte I have received advice every day I’m at the office. This is a very tough question for me as there are so many great coaches across the board that I would love to be able to sit down with and pick their brains.
At Charlotte I have been truly blessed to be able to work under some great coaches who have many years of experience and success under their belts. One coach that I would particularly like to sit down with is Tim Corbin of Vanderbilt University.
I want to be able to positively impact young players during their journey through life and baseball.
