Baseball Players Sign Letters of Intent

Three Corinth High School seniors signed their letters of intent to play baseball at the collegiate level: Samuel Curtis at Northeast Community College; Ethan Huff at Itawamba Community College; and John Neal Welch at Northeast Community College.

This accomplishment speaks highly of their talent as less than 8% of high school athletes go on to play a varsity sport in college. “I can't overstate how proud I am of these three young men,” said Corinth’s Head Baseball Coach Kevin Williams. “These men have represented our school and program well, and they are now fulfilling a dream that few get to realize. We are excited about this opportunity for them, and I know that their hard work and dedication to their craft will continue to serve them well at the next level.”

These student-athletes are also excited for the next step in their baseball careers. “It feels amazing to know that I have the opportunity to keep playing the game I love! Baseball is such a big part of my life and I look forward to continuing my baseball career,” said Samuel Curtis.

“It feels great to be officially signed to play the sport that I love,” said John Neal Welch. “I look forward to winning with a new team, contributing to the team, making new friends and going to new places to play baseball.”

“The excitement is definitely increasing knowing that I am officially playing baseball at the next level,” said Ethan Huff. “I am very humbled and honored to start this next chapter in my life.”

These student-athletes strongly believe that their coaches and teammates have been a valuable part of their growth.  “I don’t have near the time or space to properly thank every coach who has helped me along the way. However, I did want to give a special thanks to John Lewis and the late Brad Davidson for helping find my love for the game,” said Curtis. “I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that I would not be the same person I am today without all the coaches and teammates I’ve had along the way.”

“My coaches have helped me mature and become a young man. They keep me in line for what the future holds for me,” said Welch.

Huff agrees. “If it weren't for my coaches, I wouldn't be here with this opportunity. I'd like to thank coach Derek Smith, Davy Estes, Michael Green, Kevin Williams, and Rob Scarborough,” said Huff. “They have developed me into the baseball player I am today.”

The future looks bright for these three student-athletes and Corinth High School wishes them the best as they continue their baseball journeys at the collegiate level.
