Louisburg College baseball had two student-athletes sign National Letters of Intent to continue their education at four-year schools. Hayden Laws signed to Lenoir-Rhyne University and Phillip Boykin signed to Norfolk State University.
Laws is a sidearm left-handed pitcher that comes into games in the toughest of situations to get outs. His ability to miss bats and to get soft contact from a different arm slot is his strength. Hayden can also pitch multiple times per day and per weekend. People in the program appreciate how Hayden and his family have made their home open to his teammates and have hosted outings throughout his two years here. As a freshman, Laws was third on the pitching staff with 17 appearances.
Phillip Boykin is the middle of the order hitter that is one of the Hurricanes' team leaders. He has an infectious personality that is well liked and respected by his teammates. He communicates well on and off the field and comes from a good family. When Phillip Boykin says something, his teammates listen. Boykin was 1st team All-Region OF last year and led Region X in homeruns.
According to head coach Blake Herring, "These two players have found great schools to continue their education. We are proud of them for working hard throughout their time at Louisburg. By taking care of business in the classroom, working hard and being a good teammate, these two young men have earned four-year scholarships and that's what our program is proud of. We help these players reach their dreams and are happy that they are able to continue to play the game that they love."
