Coach Herback-South has an extensive baseball background & has competed at some of the highest levels. As one of the youngest players selected to Team Saskatchewan, he competed in two Canada Cup Tournaments and one Jeux du Canada Summer Games. He received a full scholarship to Div. I Northeastern Oklahoma A & M and made it to the NJCAA World Series in Grand Junction, Colorado in his freshman year. In his sophomore year he was selected as team MVP and received all-conference honours at Taft College, which earned him a full scholarship to Div. I California State University, Northridge in his junior year. After experiencing elbow pain at CSUN, he underwent Tommy John surgery by Dr. Kremchek at Beacon Orthopaedics in Cincinnati, Ohio. Josh attended an open pro tryout in Detroit, Michigan, and was one of the first players selected to compete for the Macon, Pinetoppers in the Peach State League. Suffering from shoulder tendinitis, his professional career ended as quickly as it started, but the injury only renewed his passion for teaching the game of baseball. Josh is certified by Driveline Baseball in the Basics of Pitch Design.
