Michael Shulze, a two-sport athlete (baseball & football), is coming off his most productive varsity seasons to-date. In 2017, Shulze hit .362 and stole 13 bases for Leonard High School (TX). Shulze also showed power and speed at the plate, collecting 6 doubles, 4 triples, and posted an OBP of .467.
“I can’t wait to get rolling,” said Shulze in the days leading up to signing with LPG. “I’m extremely excited to see what I can accomplish with LPG, and I’m proud to be part of The Elite.”
In addition to performing well on the diamond, Shulze showed productivity on the gridiron, as well. The junior wide receiver hauled in 29 passes for Leonard High School for 317 total yards, and averaged 10.9 yards per reception.
“There’s no doubt we’re excited to add Michael to an already talented Class of 2018,” commented CEO Jake Luce. “I knew Michael would be a great fit after the first time I saw him play. His work ethic is off the charts, and he takes care of his business off the field and in the classroom. College coaches love multi-sport athletes. I’m interested to monitor his progress over the next several months.”
When asked what sport he wants to play in college, Shulze did not hesitate. “Baseball,” he said. “Baseball is my first love.”
Shulze joins the LPG Family along with his mother, Cindi Kent.
