Mike Driscoll perfectly fits the image of a coach’s dream.

Described as a dedicated, hard-working leader, the 6-foot righty headed to Northeastern University spent three seasons on the varsity baseball squad at St. John’s Prep while maintaining a 3.99 (weighted) grade point average.

As a senior this spring, pitching on a loaded staff, Driscoll sported a 1.24 ERA and 20 strikeouts over 17 innings pitched. His stats were admirable, but it was his work ethic that stood out, earning him the coach’s award for his effort as a player and as a teammate.

Now dominating on the mound for Danvers Post 181, Driscoll has earned half of the team’s six wins and is sporting a 1.4 ERA, racking up 33 strikeouts in 25 innings pitched.
