This recent Tuesday, April 18th, Collinsville baseball players, Chase “Tazz” Lorg and Bryce Coons signed to Independence Community College. The athletes have been remarkable assets to the Cardinal Baseball program over the last four years. But, as their senior year is coming to a close, they have now signed their way into playing in college as ICC Pirates.
Both athletes, stated to be “overjoyed” and “honored”, were surrounded by an incredible support group filled with family, friends, coaches, and team mates. The two athletes signed early that morning, making it official to compete another four years in the sport they so love. Lorg and Coons both will be missed by the baseball program, but will also have a massive fan base as they compete on the college level. Both players hope to pursue their athletic and academic goals to their full potential as they take this next step in their lives together.
