- "Throwing with Madison Throws Club and going to MTC Clinics has helped me because I play basketball as well...It helps me get back into the throwing season. I start out pretty rusty and the extra work helps out a lot - especially with great coaches that really know what they are talking about! It creates a time to get out all the kinks you may have."
- "Joe gets me relaxed to have big throws. I seem to always throw my best when he is around! He knows what he is talking about and has many different drills and techniques to help you do your best."
