Ethan grew up in Gravette, AR and attended Gravette High School. After a very successful high school career, he chose to further his baseball career at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. In his senior season, he played a key role out of the bullpen in route of the school’s best season in history while capturing a Southland Conference Championship and finishing nationally ranked in the top 25. His best achievement in college other than earning his degree, was throwing a complete game win in the championship round of the Starkville, MS regional in 2013. After college, he finished his career with a short stint in the Independent Frontier League with the Gateway Grizzlies in Illinois. Ethan enjoys seeing players reach their goals individually and collectively and enjoys seeing players mature through the game in everyday life.
