Collins is a native of Calabasas, California and is currently attending Chaminade College Prep High School. He finished his junior season with a 4-0 record, a 1.15 ERA, 50 strikeouts in 61 innings pitched, and was named Mission League Pitcher of the Year.
“It’s been nice because it’s more of a laid-back atmosphere,” Collins said of the Chaminade baseball program. “We all love playing baseball and working hard when we have to, but we have a good time doing it.”
Collins is committed to play collegiately next year at the University of San Francisco and said he chose to go to school there because of the opportunity to play at the Division I level and his love for the city.
“I’ve always loved San Francisco because my dad is from there, and I still go up there all the time,” Collins said. “It’s always been a dream of mine to play Division I baseball so when I got the chance to play [at USF] I felt like it was a perfect match for me.”
He is the son of Cindy and Patrick Collins and has four siblings, two sisters, Chloe and Christiana, and two brothers, Joel and Randy.
