This week, Dave’s guest is Justin King, a 2012 EMU graduate and a four year member of the baseball team. This past year, Justin was the JV baseball coach at Turner Ashby High School in Bridgewater and recently was offered a teaching job in the Rockingham County School system and is being contacted about other coaching opportunities. While Justin’s baseball experience at EMU wasn’t what he had hoped for or maybe expected, he used every experience and opportunity to prepare him for life after college. And as he reflects on the growth he experienced, he realizes how important it was for shaping his life. Justin also reflects on his first year of coaching at the high school level and is able to articulate how his EMU baseball experiences prepared him for coaching.
