Baseball Inks Another for 2010-2011 Class


Baseball Inks Another for 2010-2011 Class

Devon Workman
Clermont/East Ridge Highschool
5-11, 185

Students at East Ridge High School learned Thursday about the values of hard work in the classroom and in the sports arena.

Six of the school's student-athletes became shining examples of the core principles of high school when they celebrated signing national letters of intent or announcing verbal commitments to state colleges.

Devon Workman signed with Florida Atlantic University.

Workman, who verbally committed to FAU in December, said he felt it was important to sign before his senior season. That way, he said, it will be easier to "relax and just worry about playing baseball."

East Ridge baseball coach David Bultema agreed with Workman. He believes his trio of signees will perform better without the pressures of worrying about college coaches looking over their shoulders.

"Baseball is hard enough to play without players having to think about how a strikeout or a rough outing on the (pitcher's) mound will affect their standing with college coaches," Bultema said. "Now, with their college decisions out of the way, they only have to worry about maintaining their academic standing and helping their high-school teams win in their final season. The recruiting process isn't always fun, but by signing early and getting it out of the way, their senior years in high school can still be fun."
