Interview With Glen Oaks Community College Softball Coach

Glen Oaks Softball

Welcome to Interview #18.

I am pleased to share with you the wisdom of NJCAA Softball Coach of Glen Oaks Community College, Tom Muckel.

Today I feature an interview with a Junior College coach here on The Recruiting Code. My goal is to help every student athlete find the best fit in a college program. We can't all play D1, but I firmly believe there is a place for everyone who wants to put in the work and play their game. Whether it is finances, grades, or a family situation requiring a student to stay close to home, there are good reasons to consider spending time in a Junior College program before transferring to a four year school. But attending a community college does not mean the end of an athlete's career, you can still play the sport you love.

As an introduction to Junior College athletics today I feature Tom Muckel, Head Softball coach at Glen Oaks Community College, in Centreville, Michigan. Coach Muckel has been coaching softball and baseball for 30 years. Over the years he has helped a lot of players transition to the collegiate level, both as a youth coach and a college coach.

How do you find players for your team? What type of student and athlete do you focus on?
