Baseball Training NxtGen

ALUMNI

Meet the young men who represent what it means to be NxtGen.

Whether it’s Stanford University, Oregon State, or the Pittsburgh Pirates, their journeys are unique and inspirational and it’s only just begun.

Introducing the NxtGen Alumni. 

 

"We cannot always build the future for our youth,
but we can build our youth for the future."

- Franklin D. Roosevelt

The Now Generation

I met Coen Wynne at one of our first camps. I had never seen him pitch but he talked about the desire to play at a high-level Division 1 NCAA College. At the time, there was a slim chance of that opportunity ever coming to fruition. 

When I watched him pitch I knew right away he was worthy of greater things, even if he didn't always share the same belief. 

I made it my mission to create opportunities so few from Australia were able to get. 

A year later he was off to Grand Canyon University and changing the trajectory of our Australian players. Since then we have successfully committed our players to some of the highest-ranked D1 programs and most prestigious schools in the USA. As well as been instrumental in some of the biggest professional signing bonuses including the second largest bonus of all time to for an Australian. 

The NxtGen Alumni was born. 

It has been an honor to be in the corner of all our players and their families to mentor and build the type of character you'll read about below.

We are just getting started.

I am an LHP at Washington State University in the Pac 12. I came over to the states with NxtGen and it opened the opportunity for me to get noticed. I worked so hard to get where I am and so can you. If you have a dream chase it because I am living mine.

LHP, got there through representing Team NxtGen at the Arizona Fall Classic with Ryan. Was able to get many offers from the AZ fall classic which required me to go take a couple of official and unofficial visits. Ryan worked very hard to get me the best deal and college possible. I landed at Gonzaga University and haven’t looked back. The opportunity that they gave me was special and something that I wouldn’t ever take for granted.

I am playing for the #2 ranked Oregon State University. I got here through playing at the Arizona Fall Classic with Team NxtGen in 2019 and having recruiting heads from all over the west coast see me play while NxtGen Coaches were talking to Schools for me and helping me get a scholarship. I have loved every bit of my time as a Beaver so far and and looking to add a national championship in the near future.

I signed with the Pirates in February 2020 as a 16yr old. I am no different from any young baller from Australia but decided very young that I would not let anyone else outwork me. If you want to make it to the top my advice is no matter how good you are, you need to have so much confidence and truly believe you are better than everyone next to you.

NxtGen helped me go from an unknown player in Australia to a highly recruited prospect by colleges and professional teams, ultimately landing me a lucrative professional contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. In a sport where Australians get fewer looks than our counterparts, NxtGen provided a great opportunity to get noticed and level the playing field. Ryan continues to be an integral part of my career, the mentorship he has provided me over the years has been invaluable in my pursuit to develop into the best player I can be. I would highly recommend NxtGen to anyone wanting to maximise their potential in baseball.

Lower Columbia
Community College

I am currently playing at Lower Columbia College which is one of the best Jucos in the Pacific North West. I got here after committing to the University of Washington in my Sophomore year, a year before heading over there was a change in coaches and I was dropped. After this, I continued to look for another school and with the help of Ryan, I got in touch with Coach Lane. It was soon after this I committed and moved over to the USA that year. Of my two years here at LCC we are still considered one of the best Jucos in the PNW. I have managed to work hard and play well at LCC and working towards moving on to a good school.

I’m only days away from making the move from Sydney, across the world to San Francisco to fulfill my dream of playing baseball and studying at Stanford University. It’s been 3 years since I verbally committed to Stanford, so I’m extremely excited to start my journey there. Ryan and the NxtGen team helped me get to where I am, guiding me through the recruiting process and making sure I made the right decision for myself and the family. I look forward to the upcoming season, with goals to put Australia on the baseball map and to help pave the way for other Aussies to play baseball in the United States. Stanford will be national champs again I promise…Go Cards!

I’m currently playing my Freshman year at University of the Pacific. Pacific is an NCAA division 1 program in the West Coast Conference and we are located in the Bay Area in California. I was a part of the NxtGen program from the Freshman year of high school onwards which provided me the opportunity to travel to Arizona to tour colleges and play in front of college coaches. After my Sophomore year of high school, I was recruited to play at UOP and I committed that year. My freshman year has been one of the most challenging things I have ever done, but I can see now how it has made me stronger and a much better baseball player. I would say I was un-prepared for college baseball when I arrived last year, and my proudest accomplishment is earning game time this year and slowing improving to become a competitive college athlete. My goal now is to just keep getting better day after day, so I can see just how good I can get.

I am currently playing and studying at Augustana University, a powerhouse D2 school in South Dakota. With the help of my mum and the guys at Nxtgen, I was able to create a profile and get my name out to schools in the US. I had offers from schools of all levels, but after visiting the school and program, I decided that Augustana was the best fit for me academically and for baseball. We as a school have gone 43-8 so far this year in a competitive conference, and currently ranked 11th in D2. I have gotten a lot stronger in the weight room and have seen a jump in my average fastball velo.

I have just completed my Freshman year at AWC.. Playing in the Arizona Conference has meant that every week, you know the quality of the opposition is always going to be tough.. This year I have played as starting Short Stop and have enjoyed the challenge with most teams having multiple guys throwing 95mph.. AWC finished 3rd in the conference and lost the semi final in game 3 which will make the team even more focused on next year. Having the opportunity to join the Nxt Gen team at a couple of showcases in Az gave me the exposure I needed to commit to AWC. Knowing that the coaches trust the NxtGen program will give other student athletes the chance to play college baseball..

G’day guys, I’m currently playing at Arizona Western College, it’s a junior college in the ACCAC. It was a long journey getting here but I’m so glad I’m over here and finally playing college baseball. Travelling over here and playing under the such elite level guys helped me get the exposure I needed to get to the next level. In my Freshmen year I was able to play in every single game for the year and experience college level playoff baseball. To any young kid all I have to say is how much of an experience playing college baseball is.

I’ve always wanted to go to college ever since a little kid, I went to Arizona Fall Classic with the NxtGen boys. I emailed over 300 schools when I first landed. CMU happened to be one of the schools which has interest in me, and I’ve fallen in love ever since! I’ve completed my freshman year and I wish It didn’t go so fast.
