Wayne comes to LCCC after playing his freshman season at DII Lakeland Community College. During his high school career, Wayne earned All-State and All-Conference honors in baseball for Lakewood. He was a two-year varsity letter-winner and team captain for the Rangers at catcher, and has extensive experience in travel ball, playing for multiple teams throughout the years. His favorite sports memories are coming back from a 10-run deficit to defeat Elyria Catholic and going 26-4 his senior year.
