Kobe Head: Baseball Athlete of the Week

Throwing a no-hitter is something every young pitcher dreams about their whole life. Kobe Head has already turned that dream into a reality. In only his sophomore season at the Community Christian School in Georgia, he pitched a 13-strikeout no-hitter, while going ⅔ at the plate on the day. In that same year, he finished the season with a 1.2 ERA, and 35K’s in 30 innings of work. While pitching is his passion, he is not to be taken likely when he steps up to the plate. Kobe once hit 2 home runs and went 7 for 8 in the Elite 8 baseball tournament. On top of that, he batted an astounding .523 in his sophomore season.

Kobe graduates in 2020 and playing ball in college is his dream. Currently, he is juggling offers from Alabama A&M and Claflin University, but he is talking to several other coaches and not in a rush to make the right choice. Kobe’s college decision will not be purely based on athletics, as he is stellar student-athlete sporting a 3.7 GPA, consistently on Honor Roll, and is a First Team Academic All-American. He enjoys the subjects of math and science and also plays basketball for his high school. 

While it is no question that Kobe is dedicated to his game, he also likes to have a good time with his friends in his little free time. When he’s not on the diamond, he is either playing PlayStation and listening to music or even rapping himself. His favorite artists are Lil Keed and BabyTayRose, and his favorite movie is Friday. Kobe aspires to make it to the MLB, but would also be happy with playing overseas as he loves the game so much. At Press Sports, we are excited to see where Kobe attends college and are looking forward to following his promising future.
