Luke is currently a COVID freshman at Midland Junior College and has also signed to continue his playing career at TCU once he graduates this upcoming spring.
In a brief interview with the CLPB Director of Operations, Max Dakin, Bumpus went on to share the following information on his experience with the CLPB
How would you rate your overall experience with the CLPB this past summer?
Bumpus: I had a great experience last year playing for the CLPB. I really enjoyed my coaches and teammates.
How would you say the CLPB helped you get ready for this past fall at your school?
Bumpus: The CLPB definitely helped prepare me for the fall season. Between the strength program at Cressey which helped me get my arm healthy as well as stronger and playing in the CLPB where I got 100+ ABs I was well equipped to come back for the fall season.
How are you doing at your current school?
Bumpus: Currently at my school I am starting in centerfield. I recently just signed to play baseball at TCU once I graduate from here in the spring which I’m super excited about. At my junior college I’m at now, we have a great group of guys this year and we’re looking to make it deep in the post season.
Any advice for incoming CLPB players to help them succeed this upcoming summer?
Bumpus: My Advice to incoming players in the CLPB is to make the most out of it. You’ll have the best training facilities and fields you can ask for with plenty of opportunities to play with and meet people with connections, it’s all about how much you use those opportunities. If your biggest goal is to become a better athlete and baseball player going into the summer, the CLPB will give you plenty of opportunities to do that.
