Pratt Community College baseball would like to introduce its “Elite Eight”—Josh Jones (1B), Tanner Kliensasser (LHP), Corey Steward (OF/RHP), Nate McBroom (RHP), Jacob Compton (RHP), Hayden Wheeler (LHP), Jay Feathers (SS/RHP), and Reece Garvie (SS).
These eight were the first of the 2015 seniors to see and believe in the vision of Beaver Baseball, and commit to playing pivotal roles in that vision. All eight of these young men bring valuable tools to the Beavers as we continue our march towards Grand Junction—NJCAA College World Series.
Although there will be more recruits, these eight were the first to make the pledge to development, greatness, and wearing the Beaver Blue. In this Elite Eight, there is power, speed, velocity, command, but just as, if not more, important, there is hunger and passion.
These eight will be looked upon to be leaders in the classroom, community and the field. As they set foot on campus as new Beavers in the fall of 2015, they will be stepping in to make an impact on everyone around them. They will impact the daily lives of their classmates. They will impact the well-being of the community around them. They will impact the fight and work ethic of their team. These young men exemplify the very meaning of the word elite.
It is our honor and privilege to bring these Elite Eight in with the strong 2015 sophomore class to help change the culture of not only Pratt Community College Baseball, but Pratt Community College athletics.
They are strong. They are talented. They are hungry. They are the Elite Eight.
