    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Dinner with Recruits

Dinner with three baseball recruits and their families at Green Mill in Canal Park.

Dinner with three baseball recruits and their families at Green Mill in Canal Park.

The Saints baseball program treats their recruits very well. Knowing that these are potential teammates and players we try and show them a great time during their stay. For the majority of recruits we have come to campus we suggest an over-night stay. The reason for this is so they get a true sense/feeling of what it is like to be a part of the Scholastica environment.

A recruit’s typical day in the fall here at CSS goes as follows:

Arrive on campus and meet with a select few players and the coaching staff. Often time there will be a tour of the campus and then the recruit and their family will sit in a conference room to get presentation by the director of admissions. After these details are hashed out about how it is possible to got o school here the coaches and select players gather with the recruit and their family. In another conference room the coaches talk about our program as whole, the baseball yearly calendar – describing what it is we do throughout the year. The recruit and his family have the opportunity to ask questions about the program and our schedule. At the end of the meeting the coaches leave the parents with the select players to ask any questions they want about life here in Duluth, what the coaches are like, how we ended up here, etc. This short panel gives the parents to get a better feel for the players that their sons will be teammates with in the future. Following the meetings the parents are taken to their hotel to get checked in by one of the coaches. Soon after the recruits, their families, the select players, and coaches go out to dinner; often times to Grizzly’s or Green Mill to have a nice dinner and have some social time. The time at dinner really shows the parents and recruits who we really are and gives them more time to get a feel for us as a program.

After dinner the recruit(s) come to campus and stay with one of the players. The team often times knows when a recruit is on campus and we all try and get together or at least go visit the recruit and introduce us. It is extremely nice when the recruits come in the fall because the following day they have the opportunity to watch our Fall Ball practice and games. The recruit gets the chance to size everyone up and experience how a typical practice is run. Every visit is important and we take a lot of pride in showing them a great time.

When one of the recruits that your were invited to come meet/visit ends up coming to school here, you know you made a positive influence on them in some way and possibly were one of the reasons they decided to come here. Our program is one of a kind and each recruit and their family is treated as if they are already a part of our family.
