Trent Mongero's Coaching Legacy

Ranks in top 50 all-time in the history of HS Baseball in Georgia with 490 wins

Coached over 100 student athletes that have gone on to play college and/or professional baseball from his high school baseball programs.

Building a championship culture takes time, patience, vision, perseverance, strong staff , dedicated players, a supportive community, family support, and faith.

My success as a head high school baseball coach is largely due to my former players who were coachable, my staff who bought into my philosophy of teaching the fundamentals first and foremost, our amazing communities that embraced the challenge of change, my wife and children for allowing me to live out my life's purpose amidst lots of sacrificed family time, and most importantly my faith in Jesus Christ who graciously has done immeasurably more than I could ever ask or imagine! I made a promise as a young high school player that I would become a high school baseball coach and lead with positivity, encouragement, discipline, fairness, and always with a TEAM FIRST mentality. I am so incredibly thankful that God has allowed me to answer this call. I would do it all over again, without a doubt! For all the coaches and players out there: "FIND A WAY" to be "UNCOMMON", and build your future "BRICK BY BRICK" so that you "LEAVE NO DOUBT!"
