" This is my 9th year with the HCYA Eagles. I've served as both the JV coach and Varsity coach. As a player, I played for 4 years at Plainview High School in Plainview, Mn. During that time, I played overseas in Japan and was also named to the Southern Minnesota All-State team. After high school, I played for 4 years at Howard Payne University in Brownwood, Texas. I've traveled to Australia to play with Athletes in Action during the summer of '91, and after college I played and coached in Germany for 2 seasons. As a coach, I've coached at Bay Area Christian School for 9 years from 1994 to 2002. My teams went to the playoffs 8 out of those 9 years, also making the Final Four in 1998 and 2000. After a 10 year hiatus from coaching, I returned to coaching with the Eagles, and I look forward to a great upcoming season. "

This is the first year for Tim to be with our program. After graduating from Deer Park High School in 2001, he was taken in the 7th round of the MLB draft by the Tampa Rays organization. A left-handed pitcher, he played for several seasons for their minor league affiliates in Princeton, WV; Poughkeepsie, NY; and Charleston, SC. Since his retirement from professional baseball, he has stayed active in the game with private pitching lessons. We feel certain this addition to our coaching staff will help us achieve our goals - both on and off the field.
