The 2018 Magnet Varsity Baseball Team is excited to make a run towards the 2A State Championship. Here are some of the players’ comments on what they wish to accomplish this season. 

JJ Bishop        

What is your goal for the season?

I want to win the State Championship. I set the bar high, and strive for the best that our team can be.

How is the chemistry on the team?

We have a very experienced team because many of the players starting this year played last year. We know everyone’s tendencies which makes it easier to play together.

What have you done to improve your game for the betterment of the team?

I have been working on the mental side of the game with positive thinking, and understanding that I can only control so much, and to take what comes at me in stride.

What is your inspirational message to the team?

Guys, don’t get caught up in the smaller school feel. We may not have the nicest facilities or largest program, but we are a unified front that can charge against any threat and test thrown our way. Remember to focus on what we can do as individuals to make the team better, and if we do that, we will go a long way.

What is your nickname?

Romo, because I am always injured, just like Tony Romo, the former quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.

How has Magnet Baseball prepared you for playing at a DIII College in Macalester College?

Balancing the academics and the sports at Magnet has helped me get ready for being a student-athlete, and on competing for a starting spot on the team.

We all played together last year and we have built good chemistry and did not lose many starters. Our team is a tightly knit group of guys.

State Championship, EASY!

Our team has a family feel to it, where you know that each teammate has your back when you are facing adversity. ”

— Beauregard Cochran

How is the chemistry on the team?

Our team has a family feel to it, where you know that each teammate has your back when you are facing adversity. We also have the ability to flip the switch on when we are behind in games to come back and win.

What will you bring to the team with it being your first year on Varsity?

I will bring a positive attitude and keep everyone’s spirits uplifted, as well as contribute to the games with my play.

What have you done to improve your game for the betterment of the team?

I have worked on my pitching and increased the velocity of my pitches. Playing basketball has conditioned my body and has made me agiler.

What is your inspirational message to the team?

Don’t worry about the other teams, be more self-reflective on our team so that we can make the next step and win a state championship. We have the talent to go to the big dance!

What is your nickname?
