For Eric Brown, head baseball coach, how does this student's exemplary behavior illustrate the goals your school is pursuing?
Chase is about as well rounded of a student athlete and human being as you will ever find. Not only does he perform on the baseball field at a high level (Team Captain, 2018 StarNews All-Area Team, 2018 MEC Honorable Mention, 2018 Team MVP) but he is even better in the community and the classroom. His leadership, membership in a variety of academic clubs, grades and academic achievements display that. He has a bright future ahead of him and a lot still left to accomplish. I'm proud to be his coach and forever grateful for the relationship that we have formed.
