Coleman Commits To Tulane (AUDIO INCLUDED)

Most students going into their sophomore year of high school have no idea what they want to do over the weekend much less what college they will be attending in 3 years, Brahman left handed pitcher Emory Coleman took care of that recently when he committed to play baseball at Tulane University.

Coleman is holding strong on his commitment and he says it has to do with academics just as much as it does with the baseball program. Coleman wants to study kinesiology, the study of mechanics of human movement and how they impact our health and wellbeing.

Coleman had a stellar freshman season at Okeechobee posting a 3-1 record with a 1.53 E.R.A in helping the Brahmans to a district championship.

Coleman says it was his energy as much as his talent that Tulane liked about him. He went on to say they like how he locates his pitches and the high ceililng he provides.

Coleman has been very busy this summer playing in travel ball tournaments all over the country including North Carolina, Atlanta and locally in West Palm Beach and Fort Meyers. He estimates that he has been home 11 days since May 29th.

As of now Tulane plans to use Coleman as a two-way player meaning they want him to both pitch and play the field.

Right now, Coleman says his fastball is consistently clocking at the low to mid 80’s. He has 5 pitches in his arsenal, the 4-seam fastball, circle change, sinker, curveball and he developed a slider over the summer.

Brahman baseball has been prominent over the past 5 years with alumni Kutter Crawford, Mason Adams and Baron Stuart all making it to the professional level. Coleman looks up to them and takes pride in their success for Okeechobee. 

Coleman lists winning another district title and improving his hitting this year as goals for his sophomore season playing for the Brahmans.
