Kevin Schnall was mentioned several times in the 2009 posts. He left Coastal Carolina for UCF for a few years, but came back to Coastal in 2015. He hasn't lost any of his intensity.

What he said.  Until someone proves to me otherwise, he is unquestionably the best.  I know him personally and he is tough as nails and expects as much from his catchers.  He is also an outstanding recruiter and hitting coach.  He is the heir-apparent head coach at Coastal but not sure how long Coach Gilmore plans to continue.  Coach Schnall has taken several (at least three) walk-on players and turned them into Johnny Bench finalists (final three players) which is college baseball's highest catching award. 

His first year back at Coastal from UCF helped them win the 2016 National Championship and I don't think that was a coincidence.  They hold several catchers camps per year and I would highly recommend attending.
