    He's taking advantage of the Frisco market. The town is built on youth sports participation. Not a bad move at all Mike.

    She's from the East Houston area.

    I see Kelsy Vincent is on staff with Mike.

    Guess he won't be trying to push players towards UL like he pushes players towards arizona now.

    The best part of owning a small business no HR department.

    If he had a hand in convincing these girls to leave UL, then I don't wish him good luck.

    Hopefully he changes for the better as he is now being entrusted with girls of high school age.

    He won't...he doesn't think he did anything wrong. He is dealing with minors now, this won't end well for him.

    It could be interesting what a mother or father of a prospective athlete at this academy does when they google Michael Lotief.

    I just read the "Lessons at Excel" link under the Academy Training Tab. He mentions by name Lexi, DJ, Alyssa Denham, and Aleah Creighton. Coincidence? Also said Alyssa was voted national player of the year. (news to me).. and he made sure to use ULL also.

    He also writes loooong rambling sentences, just like he talks.

    So he's going to teach high schoolers how to crow hop themselves out of super regionals?

    Actually, he didn't have to teach that. Maybe he should have taught umpires to call the same crow how against all the P5 team pitchers who did worse and never got called. My guess is that he would concentrate on the hitting side rather than pitching.

    Wouldn't life be better for the Lotief's had Mike taken a page out of Hud's playbook on how to act (and possibly save a career) when your employer decides to go in another direction? By the way, it is one of the best plays he had in that playbook! LOL!!!
