Former Brave signs letter of intent with BPC



It is likely that the incoming freshman will see ample amounts of playing time against various levels of competition next spring, as the Barons house both a varsity and B Team within their program.

“The coaches seem real high on him, and it’s an opportunity where he’ll get a lot of playing time because they run their own feeder program,” Coburn said. “A lot of their young guys get to play, so that’s a good thing too.”

Eunice plans to become one the top catchers on the team at BPC this year, while balancing a rigorous course load in school.

“I want to get better and hopefully make their varsity roster, improve on all my skills and have my grades up too — that’s a big deal,” he said. “I thought about majoring in biology and possibly becoming a teacher, or [work in] management working in business.”

Having already accomplished a lot as a student-athlete at BHS, including becoming an Eagle Scout, Eunice looks to reach loftier goals during this new chapter in his career.

“All of the things have helped me get admitted and stuff, and then through teachers and coaches pushing me, it just helped my determination to get to where I’m going,” he said. “They’re a very successful program, and I just felt like it’s a place I can go and get better, and hopefully go on from there.”
