Gabe Boruff enters his second year at the helm for CBC baseball. Coaching baseball on various levels over the last 11 years, Boruff was hired in April, 2014 and made an immediate impact on the recruiting trail for CBC.
A prep standout at Ephrata High School as a catcher, Boruff was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 35th round as a senior. As a draft-and-follow, he was heavily recruited to pursue the JC route. Receiving an offer from coaching legend Ed Cheff, Boruff opted for NAIA national powerhouse Lewis-Clark State College. LC State won National Championships in Boruff's first two years in the program.
Coach Boruff played two years in the Royals' organization before an arm injury shortened his opportunity. Working to stay connected to the game, he pursued opportunities in coaching. His first position, at Wenatchee Valley College, involved a program having fallen on hard times. Within three years, Boruff elevated the quality of recruiting within the program. His final recruiting class saw WVC rise from East Region also-ran to conference champions.
His success as a recruiter led to an opportunity as a volunteer at Washington State University. Gabe coached with the Cougars from 2008-2011.
Gabe and his wife Erika have two boys, Blake (5), and Drew (3).
Travis Coulter begins his third full season on staff with CBC baseball. Coulter works with the hitters, as well as the infielders.
A 2005 Southridge High School graduate, Coulter continued his career at Washington State University from 2006-2009. While at WSU, Coulter was named to the Freshman All-American Team and went on to be named team captain in 2009.
Returning to the Tri-Cities when his playing days were over, Coach Coulter helped guide the Kennewick Junior Bandits to the 2009 Regional Championship. He has also coached DEVO Select U13 and U14 teams, in addition to coaching the 2014 Kennewick Senior Bandits.
Coulter plans to remain at CBC and help the Hawks bring home Eastern Region and NWAC Championships.
