Pursuit Sports Academy - Brian DrakeCoach Drake comes to Pursuit Sports Academy with 17 years of coaching highly competitive travel softball, traveling across the country playing in national qualifying tournaments, national championships, and college exposure tournaments. Coach Drake has coached players formerly or currently playing on the collegiate level (34 total to date) including the SEC, Pac-10, ACC, Atlantic Sun and Sun Belt Conferences. Recently he coached at Pope John Paul II (from 2010-2014) where they set the record for number of wins in a season (30) in 2014.

Coach Drake’s motto has always been “practice hard and the games will be easy”. You can expect an intense practice session that will cover all aspects of the game.

Each girl responds differently to coaching and, as a coach, he is exceptional at figuring out how to handle each different player for maximum results.
