Bushland baseball players Tate Nebhut and Coleman Junell commit to colleges
Nebhut committed to OPSU, Junell joins Frank Phillips College
AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Over at Bushland High School, the Falcons baseball team celebrated two seniors, Tate Nebhut and Coleman Junell, on their college signing day.
Nebhut made his commitment to play for Oklahoma Panhandle State University. The First Team All-District pitcher went 11-1 on the year with 117 strikeouts.
“I’ve wanted to play college baseball since I was about 12, and for it to finally happen, it’s been really exciting. I feel like it’s a good way to repay my parents for all that they’ve put into me. I want to make them proud,” said Nebhut.
Junell signed his national letter of intent to Frank Phillips College. As the district MVP, batting over a .500 average, he tallied 10 wins and no losses on the mound with 100 strikeouts. Both athletes are excited to continue their love for the game at the collegiate level.
“It just means that I get to go ahead and continue my love for the game because I know when it’s over I will miss it just like everybody else does so, just being able to further that a little bit longer is a dream come true,” said Junell.
Congratulations to Coleman and Tate!
