“One of the best decisions of my life was coming here,” Good said. “I’m close with everyone in the school. Everyone knows each other. … The teachers, I love (them). They know you personally and are always looking out for your best interests. The guidance here is so good with helping you with the college process.”
Jake Good (his older brother) went on to play for Clark University, a Division III program in Worcester, and was one of seven 2016 seniors to commit to college baseball teams. That senior class, Good said, taught him numerous lessons about baseball he’s tried to follow and instill in others.
“They took everything seriously,” Good said. “Any practice was (about) the little things, do everything right, the correct way. From warm-ups to situations on the field during practice, everything was 100 percent. Everything was to get prepared for the game, get ready for playoffs, and with that mindset of you can’t even take stretching off.”
Will Good will also play DIII baseball next year, though he’ll leave his home state for Union College in New York. He attended the Headfirst Honor Roll baseball showcase last summer in Long Island, N.Y., where he met the Dutchmen’s coaching staff.
Good had wanted a school that offered both baseball and a strong engineering program, and a visit to Union confirmed it was the perfect fit.
