I am pleased to announce that for the 2017-2018 season and years moving forward that the Ohio Longhorns will be teaming up with the Impact Lumberjacks organization. The Lumberjacks currently have a 10U, 12U, 13U, (2) 14U, and 15U baseball teams. They will bring youth teams to the Longhorns Organization which has previously high school age based. The current Longhorns teams will be operating under the Ohio Longhorns name and the new programs will operate under the Impact Longhorns name. The new partnership will open up new opportunities for all players and should provide opportunities to further our players baseball and academic goals.
With the merging of the 2 organizations there will be change. I believe the changes will be positive and in the best interest of our players and the organization. The Ohio Longhorns will continue to place teams in the Diamond and Ohio Prospect Leagues allowing the boys to compete at the highest level during the week, while continuing to showcase their talents at top tournaments around the state and surrounding areas on the weekends.
One of the main benefits of the Longhorns organization is our ability to place kids into collegiate programs. Over the past three years the Longhorns have placed over 40 players in college to play baseball. While many organizations do this our kids stay at those schools and play for the duration of their college careers. This is possible because we strive to have kids that are great student-athletes with realistic expectations. Our coaching staff provide video, daily feedback and analysis, pitching rotations, etc to hundreds of coaches on a daily basis. We want coaches to know what our kids are doing, where they are doing it, and how these kids can benefit their programs at the next level. I believe that when given the chance you will all be extremely happy with the organizational decision to join forces under the one united Ohio Longhorn banner.
Many organizations say the right things, offer the world, and provide a sub-par product for an inflated price. While there may be better teams on the field, families that come to the Longhorns stay with the Longhorns. I encourage you to talk to any of my players, their families, and/or college coaches in the area. All will tell you the same thing: The Longhorns are a top-notch program that provides a quality experience for players and families. It is extremely important to us that summer ball is a positive and enjoyable experience for everyone involved. We want players and PARENTS/FAMILIES that have a good attitude and make the journey through the summer fun for everyone.
