HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) - Huntington celebrated Noah Beason on Wednesday when he signed to play baseball at LSU Eunice.
Red Devils head baseball coach Zac Baker said Beason has been dominate since his freshmen year. He was Huntington's Pitcher of the Year last year and was also a First-Team All-District selection.
Beason's signature pitch is his fast ball where he topped out at 92 mph this season. In his senior campaign, Beason pitched 42 innings, finished with a 3-0 record, with 63 strikeouts and a 3.10 ERA. Beason also pitched a no hitter during the Red Devils 20-plus win season.
"It's very exciting. I'm glad my family, my friends and my summer league coach got to come out, especially the baseball guys. It meant a lot to me. I've been dreaming of this day for a long time and it's exciting," said Beason. "I feel very confident in myself and the coaching staff down there. My pitching coach will work with me a lot and we're going to have a great time. I definitely feel like I'll be fit in just perfect."
"Since his freshmen year, he's had an explosive arm and I think it's very evident when you see him pitch," said Baker. "He has a special gift and I really think when he moves on to LSU Eunice, it's really going to come full circle. I think he can really do something special for them."
Beason said he's mulling over the idea of studying physical therapy in college.
