Kivel own words:
hello my name is jeremy kivel i am a RHP from spring, tx the highschool of current MLB pitcher josh beckett. I have always wanted to play college and pro-baseball and follow in his footsteps, it started at a young age when family and friends discovered that i have a GOD given arm and people still see that today. Also i have a GOD given work ethic and i always have to be the best at what i do no matter what. Im the first and last on the field at my highschool and if you ever get to see me on the mound i always have the fire in my eyes that this next pitch is going right past your bat, im not the biggest guy on the field at 6"1 but i have biggest heart. I play everygame as if it was my last. No matter what school i go to im going to want to bring you a championship and make history that is the type of player and person i am.

Dan (Houston, Texas): What round do you have Luke Moran and Shane Henderson from Grayson County College going in? Jim Callis: Moran in the 8th-12th round as a righthander with a solid frame and an 89-92 mph fastball. Scouts have cooled on Henderson. Maybe he factors into the 16th-20th round if he's an easy sign.
