January 29, 2019

This episode is brought to you by baseballcloud and OnBaseU.



This week we've got 2 bonus episodes that I got from the Oklahoma Baseball Coaches Association. I’ve broken them up into a college episode and a high school episode. We will still have our regular episode on Thursday and that will be Enid HS Head Coach head coach Brad Gore.

For Bonus Episode 2 we’ve got several outstanding Oklahoma high school baseball coaches from varying levels across the state. We’re going to start with Union head coach Shawn Newkirk who is also my head coach and 2018 state champion. Then we will go to Vici Head coach Kris Webb, Heritage Hall head coach Breck Draper, Edmond Memorial Head Coach Luke Yost, and the closer will be Sante Fe Head Coach Ryan Phillips.

Shawn Newkirk (1:43) on his hall of fame reflection, what his 4 pillars are at Union, and what being a mule means
Kris Webb (18:00) on promoting higher level thinkers and what his Big 5 are
Breck Draper (28:00) on Pre/Post season meetings and his “baseball test”
Luke Yost (45:00 on winning a state championship his first year, and what his 3 C’s are.
Ryan Phillips (59:00) on controlling the baseball and empowering assisting coaches
