DeKalb County High School senior, Bray Page, will continue his baseball career after his playing days with the Tigers are over, this spring. Page, the son of former DCHS baseball standout, Kelvin Page, signed scholarship papers, Friday morning, with Vol State Community College, a two-year college located in Gallatin.
Pioneers' assistant coach, Brandon Nolen, was on hand for the signing, and said the school is pleased to get a player of Page's caliber. "Bray came up for an independent showcase workout in Gallatin, and we just stumbled upon him. When we saw him throw across the infield and off the mound, we knew he was a guy we wanted to have in, right away. He has a great deal of potential, a good arm. Both our head coach and pitching coach instantly fell in love with him on the mound."
Page is excited to continue his baseball career on the next level. "They have a great baseball program. I went down there and threw, and I really liked the atmosphere of the school and the players, and it's just a great place to play baseball. The game (of baseball) has been great to me, and I really love the game. I've played all the other sports, but baseball has always been there for me and I've succeeded in it."
Tiger baseball coach, Scott Odom, is proud to see Page move on to the next level and continue his playing career. "We're really proud of Bray, and seeing him move on to play at the next level is something very exciting for our program. Signing early will help him take some of the pressure off, with our season coming up, which is sometimes a concern with seniors, especially if they get off to a slow start. Bray has started with us since he was a freshman, and hes been a great kid you can always count on. He's a leader, and you always know what you're going to get from when you put him out on the field. He means a great deal to our team."
Vol State Community College is a member of the Tennessee Junior College Athletic Association and of the National Junior College Athletic Association. Page will enroll at the school upon graduation from DCHS in May.
