Gage Huffman Signs With Ohio Valley University
Former Tyler Consolidated High School athlete Gage Huffman has signed with Ohio Valley University to play baseball. He plans to further his career and major in business administration/management.
Huffman says, “I plan to play wherever they need me to play. I’m the type of player that has played pretty much everywhere.” No matter where he is in the field, Huffman plans to give it his all. “Wherever they desire to play me,
“I will give 100% to be the best at that position.” The Coronavirus has thrown a wrench in his Summer ball plans, and he hasn’t had much of an opportunity to play this year.
Huffman knew OVU was where he wanted to continue his education both on and off the field. “OVU seemed to me like a great fit.
After a great talk with Coach Porter, I came to the understanding that they could develop me into the player I want to be,” he said.
Although Huffman’s time at TCHS has come to a close, he carries many memories with him as he furthers his career.
“My best memories at Tyler are definitely anytime I got to spend on a field or court with my teammates,” Huffman said. “They became family to me. Anytime I got to put on a Tyler uniform I made sure to wear it with pride and dignity.”
