Two Blue Devils Commit to Their Futures
Two senior student athletes officially committed to their future colleges this past week.
Ben Schorr committed to play baseball at Auburn University, and Madeline Krueger committed to play golf for the University of West Florida.
Schorr plays catcher for the school’s baseball team. In his sophomore year, he verbally committed to play baseball for Auburn. He made his commitment official this Wednesday when he signed his letter of intent in a gym full of Blue Devils.
Being raised near the school, Schorr grew up an Auburn fan. His family would always take him to baseball and football games.
“It was really easy,'' remarked Schorr, when asked about the recruiting process, “I went to a couple camps there, and they [the recruiting staff] liked me,”.
He went on to reflect on the day he verbally committed, “The recruiting coach saw me at a Showcase, and he knew I wanted to go to Auburn, so he offered me [a scholarship], and I committed that day”.
Secondly, Madeline “Maddy” Krueger on Wednesday November 13, 2019 announced her decision to sign with the University of West Florida golf team.
Madeline Krueger has been playing for Columbus High School’s varsity golf team during all four of her years at the school.
When asked what helped her make the decision to go to the University of West Florida, she responded, “The facilities are really nice,” and she elaborated on how great her future teammates are.
Krueger is thrilled to seek the academic and educational opportunities at the University of West Florida and ends with a great, big “GO ARGOS!”
Though they will go off to college following their graduation this spring, Krueger and Schorr will carry the Columbus High School Blue Devil spirit with them as they take their next step towards their future.
