Eagles Baseball Announces Signing of Elite Hurler
by Gary Stepp, ALC’s Director of Athletics
The Alice Lloyd College Eagles Baseball program, under the direction of Scott Cornett, is pleased to announce the signing of one of the mountains elite male pitchers to an athletic letter of intent for the upcoming 2013-14 school year.
ALC’s Baseball co-head coach Jason Stowers traveled to Ashland and happily returned with the fresh signature of Boyd County ace pitcher Jason Anders.
The 6’1 right hander has demonstrated that he is a true workhorse. He appeared in over 70% of Boyd County’s games last season and has big things expected of him this year as well. On the college level, he is expected to provide help in mid and short relief for the Eagles.
When asked why he chose Alice Lloyd, Anders responded, “The reason why I chose ALC is because I was impressed with the sports management program that the school has to offer. When I walked on campus, it felt like it was home for the next 4 years, and it has a great learning atmosphere. The people that I met up there were very easy to get along with.”
When asked about his college expectations, the crafty hurler said, “My expectations are to enjoy college and make something of my life. I am really looking forward to becoming a pitcher for ALC!”
Anders continued, “It’s been one of my goals ever since I was little to play college baseball. My Mom and Dad have always wanted me to make it to college. If it wasn’t for my family and coaches, I wouldn’t have made it to where I’m at now.”
When asked about the future Eagle, an excited Coach Stowers said, “Jason Anders should develop into a strong collegiate pitcher. His size and frame will be an asset as he matures and gets stronger. His fastball is ever-developing, and he has already shown tremendous improvement since his campus visit.”
The coach would add, “Jason’s work ethic and attitude will translate into him reaching his full potential as a student-athlete here at Alice Lloyd. We are pleased to welcome him into the Eagles family.”
