Falmouth High School Baseball
Finishing Strong with Colby Sawyer's Brett Emmertz
by Falmouth Baseball on May 2nd, 2015

​What was the process of being recruited to Colby-Sawyer College?
After my junior year of high school while on our annual Legion Baseball trip to Rhode Island, Coach Broughton watched me play. He liked how I hustled on and off the field and how I played the game. About a week later, Coach Broughton sent me a letter informing me about Colby-Sawyer and his program. I liked what I read about the program so I committed to attend Colby-Sawyer College.

How has it been to be a student athlete at Colby-Sawyer College?
Being a student athlete is definitely tough. Some people say it is similar to having a job and I completely agree with that. If you think about it, you are putting in 30-40 hours a week for practices and games and on top of that you have your classwork as well. Academically, I struggled my freshman year, but once I got the hang of it, it was a breeze.
What is your proudest moment playing Colby-Sawyer College baseball?
I have many proud moments while playing with Colby-Sawyer. One of my proud moments came this year. My senior year, we had a very young Colby-Sawyer baseball team featuring fifteen freshmen. We struggled for the majority of the season, losing the first twenty-five games. Then we went on to win five of our last eleven games. We showed that we stilled cared after losing twenty five games in a row. It was tough being a senior and going through that, but I was extremely proud of my team when we finished the season strong.

What are you doing after graduation?
As of right now, I have a couple of good opportunities, but for the time being I will be in Falmouth for the summer and see where life takes me.

What did you major in and why?
I majored in Sport Management and minored in Business Administration. I originally wanted to work in professional sports, but now my dream is to own a baseball facility.

Do you have any some advice for high schoolers looking to play at the next level?
I originally wanted to go south to play baseball, but I decided to stay close to home so my family could watch me play. Now that I have gone through four years of New England baseball, I regret my decision of playing in New England. I should have stuck with my original gut feeling and went south to go to school and play baseball. Although I regret my decision, I made memories and had fun with my team and the friends I made. No matter what decisions are made, it is important to have fun and make the best of every opportunity.
