Co-Lin lands area athletes
Athletes from Bogue Chitto, Brookhaven Academy, Loyd Star, Wesson and West Lincoln have signed on with Co-Lin to continue their sports careers.
Eli Cupit, who played center for the Bogue Chitto Bobcat gridders, is headed to Co-Lin as a Wolfpack snapper, although his high school sports involvement encompassed powerlifting and baseball as well.
Meanwhile Brookhaven Academy gridders Corey Case and Tyler Fortenberry and baseball and soccer standouts Trenton Tarver and Yosvin Henandez bring multiple athletic talents to help Co-Lin. In Case, Co-Lin picks up a new all-round kicking specialist who is recognized for his performance as a punter and field goal and point-after-touchdown kicker on the football field. Fortenberry, a quarterback who also played basketball and baseball at BA, follows his older brother Trey, a tightend, to the Co-Lin Wolfpack. Tarver is a catcher/infielder, who also will bring a power bat to Co-Lin in baseball. Hernandez scored 28 goals for a BA soccer team that posted an 18-2 record in the past season.
Loyd Star's Riley Easterling, an infielder, should also help Co-Lin's run production in baseball with a strong bat. Wesson's Collin McGowen, a linebacker, should bolster Co-Lin in football on the defensive side of the football, while West Lincoln's Jackson Taylor will bring his 6-foot-5, 295-pound presence to the offensive line.
