It doesn’t get much better than a trip back down to Louisiana and the Southland Conference. That’s where we’re headed in this episode as we talk with the head coach of Southeastern Louisiana University baseball, Matt Riser. We’ve got quite a track record here with Southland baseball and Coach Riser doesn’t disappoint.
In this episode we talk to Coach Riser about passion, community, Louisiana, baseball in Louisiana, his college playing days at Pearl River CC and Tulane (for former guests Rick Jones and Mark Kingston), what he learned from about recruiting from his own experience (“don’t commit at the table”), advice to high school coaches advising athletes on the recruiting process, his entire coaching career at one place, expectations, failure as an opportunity, finding a niche in recruiting, his staff, and the Southland Conference.
