ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - For the Terrell Academy Eagles, another player is taking his talents to the next level.
And this time, it’s coming off their baseball team.
Friday, in a packed room, Garrett Sloan made it official, as he signed his letter of intent with the Mercer Bears.
A university he’s had his sights on for a while.
Sloan said, this moment and this opportunity is what you work for.
“I like Mercer, I like the team, I like facilities. Their coaches are really top notch, for what they are. I just enjoyed being there on my visit and it was awesome. And just making new teammates, making new friends for life, and getting to work and playing baseball.”
Last year, the Bears found the Athens Regional.
And Sloan, hopes to help them reach even further.
