The next player to be showcased in our Player Spotlight series is Michael Molina. Playing competitively for about two years now, Michael has risen to one of the top players in the state, finishing 2nd place in the 2017 Arizona State Cornhole Championships.
Michael, who also throws horseshoes competitively, started playing cornhole with the Get Some crew. He is now a regular, playing competitively 3-4 times per week. Along with his 2nd place finish at the state championships, Michael has won some doubles and singles tournaments in Arizona and California. Recently, he won his first ACL Regional Singles tournament, beating out a field of 58 other players.
Michael's long term goal is to compete and finish in the top 5 against the top players in the country at the Championship of Bags (COBS). To achieve that goal, Michael knows he needs a consistent airmail game. He practices constantly on that part of his game. He even has someone stand in front of the board, throwing over them while trying to hit as many airmails as he can.
It will be fun to continue to watch Michael's game grow as he aims for the Arizona Player of the Year during the 2017-18 season.
