TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - It's no secret the North Florida Christian baseball team is a powerhouse program. The Eagles have won four State Championships and have numerous kids playing at the next level. On Thursday, that rich tradition continued, as three more athletes put pen to paper.
Trey Pearce and Taylor and Brandon Schmidt all signed scholarships to play baseball at Pasco-Hernando State College, and all three, played on last year's Class 3A State Runner-up squad at NFC.
Trey hit .300 last season, driving in ten runs and scoring thirteen times. He spent time on the mound, and also played outfield and first base for the Eagles. Taylor suited up behind the plate for the Eagles, recording a near perfect fielding percentage, while twin Brandon finished with a 2.33 ERA, appearing on the mound in seven games.
"It's always good to see your players do well," said head coach Mike Posey. "For them to go off and be able to play at the next level, the opportunity is there for them. You have to make the most of it. To get a college education is very important, and I hope it opens a lot of doors for their future. We've had some really good players. These days right here, they never get old. This is what you coach for."
