History was made Friday morning at Clay County High School as Brandin Crawford became the first Tiger baseball player to ever sign a national letter of intent with a Division I power five conference school.
Crawford was surrounded by family and friends as he inked his name to the University of Louisville.
Louisville is one of the premier baseball programs in the country with recent appearances in the College World Series.
Crawford, the reigning 13th Region Player of the Year, is the son of Brad and Edith Crawford.
Tiger baseball coach Jason Smith said the honor was well-deserved for Crawford.
"Not only is he an elite baseball player, he's an elite person as well," Smith said. "He has worked his entire life for this moment, for this day to become a Division I baseball player. It would not surprise me at all to see him playing Major League Baseball some day."
Crawford signed as a pitcher. You can find out more about his signing in the next issue of The Enterprise.
