Dear Coaches,


     My name is Carter Thessing.  I am currently a sophomore catcher on the Russellville High School baseball team.  I am 5”9” and weigh 159 pounds.  I was the starting freshman and junior varsity catcher my freshman year.  As a freshman I also got some field time on the Varsity squad.  One of my strengths is that I am a consistent switch hitter.  My on base percentage was .600 during the summer travel ball season, in which I played on a USSSA Major level team.   I consider blocking as one of my strengths behind the plate.  Currently I have been participating in some intense hitting and catching camps that have been put on through the University of Central Arkansas.  These camps have allowed me to strengthen my future game while getting some feedback to further my career.  I have also been participating in some speed acceleration training through Lane Physical Therapy.  Before the speed training my fastest 60 yard time was 7.7 seconds, but after speed training my time is now 7.2 seconds.  My pop time averages 2.2 seconds. 

     During the past two years I have also been part of our high school varsity tennis team.  As a freshman I dual sported in tennis and football.  Tennis has allowed me to stay in excellent physical shape during the offseason.  It also helps to keep me mentally tough.

     Off the field and court is just as important.  I have a 3.48 GPA.  On my first attempt on the ACT I scored a 19 cumulative score.  I would like to improve on both of those.  My hope is to go on to play college baseball and further my education, possibly in the athletic training field. 

     Having the opportunity to play on your team would be a privilege for me.  I am looking forward to being an integral part of your team. 


Thank You for the Consideration,

Carter Thessing
