Brendan Koester, Junior, recently competed in the battle of the borders for Prep Baseball Report. Brendan is a right handed pitcher that has improved and reached 89 mph multiple times in his performance on Saturday, October 15, 2016. Brendan pitched two full innings and struck out five of the six batters. Brendan is now listed as the number one pitcher in the class of 2018 in the State of Kentucky. Brendan continues to work hard and he has just started a training program to continue to strive and get better. Brendan says, “I am not looking to stop here, I will get better and work my hardest.”
On November 16, 2016, Brendan Koester was put on “The Hotlist: 2018s on the Rise” article saying how he is a 2018 prospect to watch, and D1 colleges should keep an eye on him. This is an awesome opportunity for our Eagle family and the baseball team.
Just last week Eastern’s baseball team saw 2017 ace, Gavin Sullivan, sign with D1 baseball powerhouse, the University of Louisville Cardinals. It looks like the Eagles have another hot prospect with him in the rotation!
Congrats Brendan! Keep working hard!
