Colin Moro (UC Dino’s Head Coach) – email@example.com:
Chris’ work ethic on and off the field is a great example of how to be a leader. His knowledge of the game raises everyday, which is a big reason why he can perform the way he does on the mound. He is not the hardest thrower but his ability to move the ball around the zone helps him get hitters out.
Jeff Aker (UC Dino’s Strength and Conditioning Coach – firstname.lastname@example.org:
I had the pleasure of working with Chris Kuno throughout his time with the U of C’s Baseball program and truly admire the work ethic he brought on/off the field. In my role working with Chris as a strength and conditioning coach he was extremely dedicated and coachable from the very beginning and was able to make significant progress as a result. This translated into his evolution as a strong leader for the Dinos on the field as well as in the weight room. Chris is wise beyond his years and would be a great addition to any team setting.
Chris is looking for a club for the 2017 summer. He is able to pay for his own flights. He is also willing to work if the club can help him find a job. He is available as of mid-March 2017.
