On Thursday evening, Brady Latham gathered with coaches, family, friends, and teammates to sign his national letter of intent to play baseball at Kentucky Wesleyan College during the 2019-20 season.
Kentucky Wesleyan College is located in Owensboro, Kentucky just 40 minutes east of Evansville, Indiana, 2 hours west of Louisville, Kentucky. KWC offers 29 majors and 13 pre-professional curriculums.
The Kentucky Wesleyan College athletic department sponsors 21 (11 men / 10 women) varsity sports, competing at the NCAA Division II level. Known as the Panthers, Kentucky Wesleyan is a founding member of the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC), a conference comprised of institutions in Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, and West Virginia. NCAA Division II operates on a partial-scholarship model, and athletic scholarships are awarded at Kentucky Wesleyan at the discretion of each head coach.
When asked about his opportunity to play at the next level with the Panthers, Brady said, “Being able to sign with Kentucky Wesleyan is a blessing. I’ve worked so hard to be where I am and for this opportunity to be presented to be is a dream come true. I’ve been through a lot in my athletic career and I couldn’t be any more thankful and appreciative for the support system that I have behind me especially with my parents. As soon as I went on my visit and met with Coach Lillpop, I fell in love with the school and the program. I couldn’t be any happier where I am at this point in my life and I am very excited for the future to come. I am forever grateful to have all the people in my life that I do. So thank you all!”
Charlestown Pirate coach Ricky Romans said, “I couldn’t be more proud of Brady for the hard work the he has put in during his time with us. He has earned this opportunity and there is no doubt in my mind that he will succeed at Kentucky Wesleyan. I look forward to watching him improve this year and contribute at the next level.”
The Charlestown High School athletic department and WPMQ, The Pirate Network congratulate Brady and wish him a healthy and prosperous future as a Kentucky Wesleyan College Panther.
