Callaway’s Chase Freeman and Nick O’Berry made it official last week.
The two former Callaway baseball players signed their letters of intent with their respective colleges.
O’Berry is heading to Southern Union to play baseball, and Freeman signed with Point University in West Point.
Those two players helped the Cavaliers reach the Class AAA quarterfinals last season, and they both enjoyed stellar seasons.
On the pitcher’s mound, O’Berry was 5-2 with a 1.82 earned run average, and he was also one of the team’s best hitters.
O’Berry, who played the outfield when he wasn’t pitching, hit .378 and led the team in hits (31) and was second in RBIs (20).
Freeman, meanwhile, had his best season of his high-school career as a senior when he hit .368 and led the team in home runs (five) and RBIs (22).
Freeman was also a punter on the Callaway football team that made it to the final four last fall.
Freeman will be part of a sizeable contingent of local players at Point, including Brannon Weathers, who just graduated from Troup High.
Former Troup High standouts Brandon Butts and Justin Neighbors, as well as former Callaway Cavalier Drew Elliston, are already on the Point baseball team.
Freeman and O’Berry were a part of some extremely successful teams at Callaway.
The Cavaliers made it to the quarterfinals in 2012 and 2014, and they advanced to the second round of the playoffs in 2013.
