John Poccia is a Top 5 pitcher in the Shore Conference. Desales University has taken the right hander off the Board!
Poccia discussed the decision making process. Arcadia, Philadelphia University, and Fairleigh Dickinson were all looking for his services. “I chose Desales because after meeting the team and coaches, I felt that it was a perfect fit for me. The program has always been winning behind the success of the Head Coach and I want to continue that tradition”, Poccia said.
It was a mixture of academics and athletics that made the final decision one that he felt confident it. “From my coaches to my guidance counselor, I got the best advice to help me choose the best academic school while also giving me the opportunity to play. It was essential from the beginning of John Poccia’s college search; that those two elements had to be present in the process.
With another school year in the future, Poccia explained what his goals are for the 2016 season at RBC. “I plan to keep my grades up while also showing good leadership on and off the field. We’re looking for the team to have another successful year” He will be relied upon to be the leader for the Caseys this season. A mixture of timely hitting and clutch starting pitching led by John Poccia was a huge factor in getting to the Shore Conference finals last season.
