Zach Looney Feeling Positive About His Final Ride

Written by Calisa Reis ('14) 


Zach Looney, a senior catcher is filled with positive thoughts as he heads into his last season of Bronco baseball. As a freshman, Looney helped contribute to the team's success and his role on the team has only increased since then. As the season nears, Santa Clara Broncos (SCB) caught up with Looney as he reflects on his experience as a Bronco and what he hopes to get out of the season.


SCB: As a freshman that came in and started 43 games, how have you developed as a player over these past three seasons?


ZL: I think the biggest thing that I have learned is there is so much more to the game than going out and hitting, throwing, running, etc. Our coaching staff does an unbelievable job of giving us tools to improve in the mental aspects of the game, which are extremely important. I had never realized how important your attitude, preparation, and mental approach was until I came to Santa Clara. They have also done an amazing job of putting a system into place to keep us healthy whether it is lifting, sleep, academics, nutrition, or even happiness.
