North Florida Christian Pitcher Carson Sands has picture perfect form. Thats why both pro scouts and FSU covet him.

"I actually lose sleep over it every night. I sit and lay in bed and think about it." Sands said.

Standing 6'3" tall, many baseball scouts are projecting the hard throwing lefthander to be a late first round, early second round pick in next year's amateur draft.

"When you hear that pop it tells you it's going to be a good day. Usually it means you're right in the zone, you're hitting the mit the right way and and that's one of my biggest pet pieves is the catcher's glove. If it's not popping then I'm going to feel like, I wont feel good that day," Sands said.

And Sands has quite the arsenal. He showed his pitches.

"Here's the four seam. Two seam, running the inside of the seams. Alright, you have the curve ball. Circle change," Sands said.

It'll all be on display at the end of the August. The rising senior will participate in the Under Armour All-American game at Wrigley Field.

"I'll be sweating bulletts for sure. I'll have a big smile on my face one of the things and one of the things I'll be looking at, when Im walking out is there will be a thousand fans behind me watching and looking and people back home watching on tv," Sands said.
