Class of 2016 Spotlight - Patrick Staul

Class of 2016 Spotlight - Patrick Staul

WINCHESTER, Va. - We continue our look at the Class of 2016 by meeting baseball pitcher Patrick Staul.

Major: Sports Management 

Sport Played: Baseball 

Why did you choose Shenandoah?  I chose Shenandoah because I loved the school on my visit and liked the small school feel. It is nice having the ability to go to your professor whenever you want to just talk about class or life in general. When I stayed overnight on my recruiting visit was when I decided because the baseball guys made me feel like I was already a part of the team without even being there. 

Favorite Class and Professor:  100% Sport Governance and Policy. Dr. Wigley and Dr. G, they have both helped me so much with getting internships and how to get my foot through the door in the sports industry. 

What do you like most about playing sports at SU?  I like how every team supports each other and is always happy to see another team succeed. I also like that with baseball we are like a fraternity and brotherhood. 

Favorite thing to do in Winchester:  My favorite things to do in Winchester are either go fishing at a lake or on the Shenandoah River and go play a round of golf at Appleland with the boys. 

Favorite SU Athletics Memory:  My favorite memory would have to be winning the ODAC Tournament for the first time in school history this past season in Lynchburg. That was the most exhilarating feeling that I have ever had. Plus the other two dog piles from the two games before were a good addition to that. 

What has playing athletics at SU meant to you? Playing baseball here has meant a lot to me. It has provided me with so many opportunities to better myself as a person and as a student. It has given me qualities and memories that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. The faculty and coaches have provided me with so much knowledge about the game of baseball and what it takes to succeed in life. 

Post-Graduate Plans:  Would be to end up working game day operations with an Major League Baseball organization and to coach baseball at some point. 

Nobody knows that I... played the viola until I was in 5th grade.
