John Cooper School's dual-sport star Jaxson Pierce has had a breakout season so far toting the rock for the Dragons, who are undefeated.

In the Spring, he will trade his shoulder pads for a catcher's mitt as he goes behind the plate for the Cooper baseball team.

VYPE caught up with one of the city's top private school athletes to pick his brain about his high school career and beyond in the 411.


VYPE: You are blowing up this season. What's been the difference this year?

PIERCE: I've been really invested this season in looking at the film and getting to know the other team, which helps me a lot during game time when I need to make quick decisions. I've been improving on my open-field speed and hitting the hole harder to make myself a very hard back to bring down.

VYPE: People know you for football and baseball. What is something people might NOT know about you?
