Off the board; Dylan Campese Accepts his Offer to Attend Queens University

by John Bethune

The Titans Baseball Club is proud to announce they have  added to their list of 2020-2021 college/university commits as Catcher Dylan Campese accepts his offer to attend Queens University in Kingston, ON. The left-handed hitting backstop joins an impressive Golden Gaels squad, who has proven they are a top program in the OUA baseball conference. Under Head Coach Jeff Skelhorne-Gross, the Gaels have produced a multitude of winning seasons and are poised to make a run at the OUA Championship. 

Campese will look to make an immediate impact on an already strong Golden Gaels team, bringing leadership and a consistent work ethic to the program. The Thorton, Ontario Native is an exceptional student-athlete who carries a 4.0 GPA into his freshman year as a Gael. He will be studying Engineering during his time at Queens, and looks forward to making a positive impact in the clubhouse and in the classroom. 

The Titans 18U catcher is extremely excited for the opportunity to play for the Queens Golden Gaels and attend school at one of Canada's finest educational institutions. He went on to say, "Queens is a great fit both athletically and academically. The team is always a big contender in the OUA conference, and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for me at the school". Dylan expressed how thankful he is of the Titans High Performance Baseball Club, adding, "I'd like to thank everyone who has helped me get to this point, especially Coach Lawrence Vera who I've played under for the last four seasons, as well as Coach Andrew White, and the rest of the Titans staff who have had a major impact on my growth both on the field and in the classroom". 

As a Titan, Dylan has played a vital role which has already earned him a Junior contract with the Intercounty Baseball Leagues' Barrie Baycats, who are 7-time defending IBL Champions. He features a strong arsenal on the field with a pop-time of 2.05s, to go along with an arm that hits 80 mph on the radar gun from behind the plate. In the batters box, Campese has an exit velocity that reaches 88 mph with a combination of great plate vision and a calculated hitting approach. Dylan's 2019-2020 playing highlights include an impressive .400 batting average during the Wright State University invitational in Dayton, Ohio this past Fall, where he also threw out 3 of 4 baserunners. 

Dylan will join the rest of the 18U Titans Baseball Club on the diamond later this summer, eager to make a strong impression in their 2020 inaugural season. 

The Titans Baseball Club wish Dylan the best of luck in the classroom and on the field as a Queens University Golden Gael.
