TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - It's already the time of year to celebrate signings, and at Leon Monday, it was a happy signing day for Paxton Tomaini, who inked a baseball scholarship with Chipola College.

Tomaini joined Leon's baseball team last year. He also is the quarterback on the football team, and a former WTXL Scholar Athlete of the Week. Last season, he led the team with 23 RBI and two home run while serving as the team's closer. Since 2007, the Indians have won six State Championships and three National Championships, a tradition he's excited to join.

"My future is going to be in baseball and when Coach Johnson offered me the full scholarship, it was no problem," he said. "I mean definitely, I want to up my game, and I can't wait to get over there and grind."
