Athlete of the Week: Faith Academy’s James Flynn

“Being early in the year, he was able to get himself in shape and go in and throw strikes. He gave us a chance to win and that’s what we expect of our pitchers,” said Faith Academy baseball coach Matt Seymour

“It felt good to go out there and get a couple wins under our wing and do well in the first couple of games of the year,” said pitcher James Flynn.

The defending state champs are off to a quick start in 2019, and pitcher James Flynn has been a big reason why.

He started the season throwing six innings of one-hit baseball and striking out seven in a win over Theodore.

“He’s a competitor, he likes to get on the mound and pitch. He’s getting better every year and that’s what we expect,” said coach Seymour.

“I know I have a great defense behind me, and a good guy calling pitches back there,” said Flynn.

Now success is nothing new for Flynn. You may remember last season, he was on the mound and got the last out to seal a championship for the Rams.

That will always be one of Flynn’s biggest accomplishments, but now it’s time to focus on defending the crown.

“They understand it’s a different year, people want to come out and beat us for sure,” said coach Seymour. “We need to work hard everyday.”
