Full Count Summer Camp Assistant
Javondre’ Cole has been a baseball fan since the young age of 7. His field days began as the coach's son. With the help of his dad and uncle, team Roedel Tile from the Peninsula little league finished an astounding 10-2 in year one, and undefeated the next. Although those early days of baseball were fun, they were short lived. It wasn’t until 7 years later as a freshman in high school that he found the desire to be back out on the diamond. In his first year back for junior varsity baseball, the team saw its most victorious season since 2011 with an astounding record of... 4-14. His leadership skills on and off the field resulted in being recommended by Jefferson’s head baseball coach for his first job as a Fellow with Friends of Baseball’s inaugural Full Count program. After hosting a week long kids camp held at Jefferson High School, Javondre’ wanted the chance to get more involved with the Friends of Baseball organization and he worked at Sunday morning camps monthly the next year. Watching children grasp and understand the fundamentals of the game brought joy and passion. His most memorable moment thus far with Friends of Baseball was being given the opportunity to emcee the Friends of Baseball 10 year anniversary in October of 2015. Most recently, he accepted a coveted summer internship role with Friends of Baseball through the Summer Works program, where he is serving as the Full Count Camp Assistant. Javondre’ is approaching his senior year of high school at Jefferson. To kickoff the summer of his senior year, he visited the city of Chicago through the Nike Product Creation Experience. Javondre’s team competed against two other teams to design the best marketing strategy with the winning team receiving an all-expenses paid trip to the city of their inspiration. Following high school, he would like to pursue a Business degree with a focus in Sports Marketing.
