Collin Adams is one of our teen athletes, well almost teenager. Collin is a 12 year old baseball player looking to get drafted out of high school as a pitcher. This is a big goal for a 12 year old, but Collin is committed to doing anything he can in preparation to accomplish his goal.
Knowing that he needed to be stronger than the others in his age group, he and his dad sought out BlackBox Fort Worth to focus on Collin’s strength and power development. When he joined BlackBox in August 2013, Collin could throw a pitch at 55 mph. After eight months of training with Dutch and Blake, Collin now clocks 63 mph. His weight has also increased from 90 lbs to 112 lbs. Collin mentions that he can feel himself getting stronger each time he comes to the gym.
When asked why he enjoys BlackBox Fort Worth, Collin told us he likes that Dutch and Blake understand his goals and have experience in his sport. He also mentions that he “likes the way it smells here when [he] walks in.” We hope that smell is one of strength and progress.
