February 2024 Athletes of the Month

Evan Earls

The best way to predict your future is to create it. -Abraham Lincoln

Everyday boys and girls are coming in and working on their future. I think this quote best fits our February Athlete of the Month, because everyday that Evan Earls steps into the building he is working harder than most. Evan goes about his business in a quiet and determined state. He is always willing to listen to direction and is always coming in looking to become a better version of himself. Congrats to Evan, our February Athlete of the month.

Evan started at the baseball club a little over a year ago doing lessons with Scott Creedon and has now continued those lessons with Lou Proietti. Scott Creedon, former Bandits coach and current coach in Oklahoma at Stewards Sports Guthrie, said “Evan is a fierce young man with a really big heart who has always wanted to do his best right from the start. He has transformed completely with a full year's work.” Lou Proetti, who has been working with Evan this year said, “Evan’s passion for baseball is clear through his effort on every rep he takes. His love of baseball has made him a great student of the game. His ability to apply feedback and listen attentively to details has helped him continue to improve and is setting him for a great spring and summer. Congrats Evan. Love seeing your hard work pay off!!”

This past year Evan started working with our 10u Bandits team. The main reason Evan received this award is because it has been recognized by his coaches just how much work ethic he has put in and how consistent his attendance has been at workouts. Also, over time they have seen such tremendous improvement. Tom King, the 10u Bandits Head Coach says, “What makes me most proud of Evan is how he has been so comfortable with being uncomfortable. Evan is not from Braintree so came in not knowing anyone and it hasn’t diminished his confidence or work ethic. The other boys have welcomed Evan and really admire all his hard work. Any athlete’s ability to become comfortable in an uncomfortable environment makes them great.”

Congrats Evan and continue to work hard.
