About Us

Dr. Ryan Hamilton

Director of Player Health and Performance

Dr. Ryan Hamilton played baseball at Aragon High School in San Mateo where he was an all county player and team MVP.  He decided to forego playing DII or DIII baseball to focus on his education and went to University of California Santa Barbara where he majored in psychology with a minor in exercise science.  Following his completion of his undergraduate education, Dr. Hamilton became a personal trainer while working towards completing the prerequisites for chiropractic school and took over the JV baseball program at Aragon High School.  Dr. Hamilton began chiropractic school in 2013 and immediately began to apply what he was learning about anatomy, neurology, and motor learning to his JV baseball team which resulted in three league championships in his four years at the helm.  

Following his graduation from chiropractic school, Dr. Hamilton moved to Boston for two years to learn from a top sports chiropractor, Dr. Michael Melander, and began to get certified in the best soft tissue, mobility, and assessment techniques.  Dr. Hamilton moved back to the Bay Area in 2018 and became the assistant varsity baseball coach at Sequoia while applying what he learned to the players in their lifting programs. Sequoia baseball used Dr. Hamilton’s lifting program to make tremendous gains in the weight room while staying as healthy as possible during the season by using a science-based approach towards strength, mobility, and recovery.

In 2020, Ryan was named head varsity coach of the Carlmont High School baseball program. He is looking forward to bringing the wealth of knowledge he has gained in his experiences to take the Carlmont program to new heights while instilling a culture of health, competition, and a growth-oriented mindset.

Whaylan Price was born and raised in the Bay Area.  After graduating from Carlmont high school in 2009, Whaylan pursued baseball at Cañada College where he graduated in 2013 with an Associate of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts.  Whaylan was blessed to have a great mentor by the name of Ron Calloway, an ex-Major Leaguer, who always told him, “You never know who may be watching.” This advice taught Whaylan to always work hard and to always stay positive.

He set the Rounders’ iron man record by starting 55 of 56 games, only missing the one game to sign his scholarship to the University of Antelope Valley, a private college in Los Angeles County. From there, Whaylan obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, a Master’s Degree in Education, and was team captain his senior year (2015).

After College, Whaylan went back home to the Bay Area and was an assistant coach to Ryan Hamilton for the JV baseball team at Aragon High School (2016).  That same year, Whaylan accepted a new position to be the Outfield Coach at Mission College, under former Major Leaguer Bobby Hill. The next year (2017-2018) Whaylan was offered a coaching position at the College of San Mateo, where he coached under Doug Williams.  Whaylan was a Math & Science teacher at Fusion Academy from 2017-2019. Currently, Whaylan is the head coach of the JV baseball team at Sequoia High School and is continuing his career in education.
