Alumni

Isan Diaz & Will Toffey

Since our founding in 2003 The Ruffnecks baseball program has grown into a nationally recognized College Development Program.  Building our reputation has taken considerable time and is a result of the efforts of many talented and committed ballplayers.  This Alumni page recognizes those players who have “graduated” from the Ruffnecks and gone on to play college or professional baseball.  All were distinguished high school players, many captains of their HS teams.  This page celebrates players who have gone on to Division I, II, and III college programs as well as to professional baseball.  As we update this page, we intend to be as inclusive as possible of those players who have gone through our program and played at least some college baseball.  Our listings are organized chronologically beginning with those who played on our first nationally recognized College Prospect Team in 2006.  The ‘06 and ‘07 teams helped to pioneer the program.  13 of those players have played  in college; 9 of them at the Division I level; 2 professionally.  We are proud of these early Ruffnecks.  Our listings after the initial group is by class and alphabetical order.  If we have lost someone, we ask that our omission be communicated to us.  We have also asterisked and listed players in the high school class of 2014 who recently finished their final season with the Ruffnecks and have committed to a Division I school or been accepted to a D-II or III school with the intent to play.  There are many other players who have played in the Ruffnecks program who have gone on to college to play baseball.  Unlike many team websites that list every player who has ever participated (even briefly) we only list those players who remained a part of our program through their college decision making process:
