Josh Rutty current teams, coaches and trainers:

Ardrey Kell High School - With over 3,100 students enrolled, Ardrey Kell is the largest high school in North Carolina. Each season, around 80 players battle for a spot on two AKHS baseball teams (JV and Varsity). In 2018, my team (AKHS varsity) went all the way to the NCHS 4A State Championship, losing a close battle to Fuquay Varina HS in game 3 of the finals. AKHS Head Coach, Hal Bagwell, has coached a number of players to the next level (NCAA) and beyond (MLB). The most notable, World Series Pitcher Alex Wood of the LA Dodgers. With 80% of my team returning this year, we look forward to another shot at the State title in 2019.

Team Carolina. In the off-season, I was invited to play for well-known Head Coach and former Pittsburgh Pirates Scouting Director, Leland Maddox and Team Carolina. I am the starting catcher for Coach Leland and also play in the outfield when needed,

Outside of my team workouts, I started working out with MBS Fitness owner and personal trainer, Mark Brown in Matthews, NC. Mark is focusing specifically on my weight training and nutrition, to help me bulk up a little for my senior year. I also take extra BP nearly every day, to increase my power and bat speed.

I am applying and visiting colleges now, but still undecided.

Personal Highlights

I have been involved in mission work here in the United States and in Haiti.
I work hard for my coaches, teachers and trainers.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

Because I love the game of baseball and want to play as long as I can.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

On the field, I work hard for my coaches and I encourage my teammates no matter what.

Off the field, I stay clean and do my best to be a good example for my school and my team.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I do my best to eat right by using a personal nutrition chart and drinking at least a gallon of water daily. I workout 3 - 4 times a week with my team, 3 times a week with my personal trainer (recently started) and 2 days a week on my own. I get 8 + hours of sleep per night. My focus this summer, is to bulk up for my senior year. I want to gain more power, without losing my speed and agility.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

My parents always taught me to care for the less fortunate. I volunteer at my church and have served many meals to the homeless with my parents. In 2015 I went to Haiti, where we served at an orphanage in Les Cayes for 7 days. It was the best trip I've ever taken. I hope to go back soon.
