College Commits

The Midwest Halos was founded in 2019 by Cody Smith and Trevor Theissen. The Midwest Halos is an elite travel program that focuses on development and exposure for ages 13U-18U with the premier coaching staff in the state. The Halos and Cody have had over 100+ athletes playing college and pro ball including (Alec Marsh - Arizona State/Kansas City Royals, Eric Torres - Kansas State/Los Angeles Angels, Luke Sommerfeld - Clemson/Detroit Tigers, Griffin Doersching - Oklahoma State/San Diego Padres, Max Alba - Liberty/Detroit Tigers, Presley Wachowiak - University of Illinois-Chicago, Willard Peterson - Evansville, AJ Lausten - St. John’s, Vidal Colon - University of Illinois-Chicago, Augie Mihlbauer - TCU). Our teams play in high-level events around the country with a focus on exposure to both collegiate programs and professional organizations.  

We're proud of all of our players but when we can help a player accomplish their goal of playing beyond high school, it's a special thing for everyone.
