Head Coach Jacob Gorrow
Coach Jacob’s start in softball is similar to many other dads. He came into the sport when his oldest daughter chose to play and fell in love with the sport. A few years later, his younger daughter decided to play and it became a family affair. Now, Jacob is entering his 7th year of fastpitch coaching, 5 of which he spent as a Head Coach. In addition to coaching, Jacob played on a men’s softball team for 4 seasons.
Coach Jacob values hard work and good character, both on and off the field. His coaching philosophy focuses on fundamentals and positive reinforcement. He strives to help the ladies he coaches reach their greatest potential by putting in the work for them to be better than they were yesterday. He takes pride in each girls’ successes and walks alongside them as they push through their obstacles.
