The last time most of us heard of former Fighting Knights, Kyle and Eric Schindler, the duo were named in the 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District Baseball Teams. In addition to that achievement, the Schindler’s were also presented with the Fighting Knight award. With their baseball achievements behind them, they are now tackling their doctorate program together.
The twin brothers are now at the University of South Florida in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program and have not relinquished their love for baseball.
“Now that [we are] in school we study a lot, more than ever,” said Eric Schindler. “However, we did join the first intramural softball team we could find.”
With the twins finding a passion for baseball at a young age, the dynamic duo shared their love for the Lynn baseball team.
“I missed it from the moment it ended, but it really hit me when physical therapy school started up,” said Kyle Schindler. “There is nothing quite like going out each and everyday working toward the common goal of winning baseball games.”
Eric added, “Lynn baseball was the most fun I have ever had on a baseball field and as a team. The friends I made from there will last a lifetime, I really miss battling it out there on the field with the guys every weekend.”
The Fighting Knight Award is presented to two student athletes who exhibit spirit, service and strength. The twins, whom of which, displayed this motto during their season.
“The lessons I learned from Lynn and the amazing opportunity we had to go there is one I am very thankful for,” said Kyle. “Being a student-athlete at Lynn definitely prepared me for physical therapy school by making me use every second of my day wisely.”
With that in mind, these brothers will be sure to carry on their Lynn experiences with them wherever the two may head next.
