JUSTIN FULTZCommit To Hitᵀᴹ Process Instructor and Roving Head Coach
Coach Fultz was born and raised in Harlingen, TX where he practically lived outside. When he wasn’t hunting on the King Ranch or fishing near South Padre Island, he was playing every sport available. His Grandfather, a coach for over 15 years, was his biggest inspiration and taught him that “the best leaders are those who know how to follow” and that “there will always be someone bigger, faster and stronger, but you can still be better through hard work.”
While following his passion for sports through college to the professional level, an injury opened the door to full-time coaching. With years of coaching experience already under his belt, Coach Fultz knew he found a home when he met a kindred spirit in Trent. TRPD’s focus of changing the culture and not accepting just what was available was exactly what he wanted to be apart of.
Coach Fultz and his wife Lindsey, have two wonderful children Kaden and Marshall Fultz. When not coaching, he stays current with anything related to college and pro sports and of course anything related to Texas A&M! WHOOP!
Coach McColl has been with TRPD since 2013 and is currently a head coach. He’s proud to have been born and raised in Austin and really gravitated towards baseball when Nolan Ryan pitched for the Texas Rangers, and remains a Ranger fan to this day.
Being a former player for McCallum High School and Southwestern University in Georgetown, Coach McColl’s most memorable baseball moment was being named the starting pitcher for their Conference Championship game as a sophomore. Unfortunately an off-season injury ended his playing days after this season, but he’s glad to be able to continue his relationship with the game through coaching.
Baseball is a game of uncertainty, and Coach McColl stresses that the only thing you can completely control as a player is the amount of effort you give between the lines.
Coach McColl and his wife Caitlin, a former UT cross-country runner, love to remain active through many sports, and love spending time with their kids Cade and Connelly.
Coach Rodriguez was born in Bronx, NY, but split much of his childhood between New York, Dominican Republic and Miami. It was this background that gave him a love for baseball, and the knowledge to know what it takes to play for a long time.
After returning from playing high school baseball his senior year in Miami, Coach Rodriguez lived with his cousin Norberto Susini in a baseball stadium in Monte Plata, Dominican Republic. This time led to a tremendous progression for his baseball skills and provided him the opportunity to build a strong friendship with Danny Santana, the shortstop for the Minnesota Twins. His time in the Dominican led him to playing college ball against Bryce Harper, as well as a major league contract with the Washington Nationals. After an injury derailed his career, he turned his time to sharing his love and knowledge with those coming up.
In his spare time, Coach Rodriguez enjoys cheering on his favorite baseball team, the New York Mets. He also enjoys listening to music, dancing Salsa or Bachata and reading motivational material. Coach Rodriguez is committed to teaching players how to play baseball efficiently as early as possible. He believes this will lead to great baseball players and even better individuals.
