Bradford High School senior David Hall fell in love with baseball the first time he played catch with his father.

That lifelong love has led to an opportunity to play at the next level as Hall signed a letter of intent on April 25 to play at Jacksonville’s Trinity Baptist College.

“I’m just really excited,” he said. “I feel like I’ve finally found a place. I think it’s going to be the perfect place.

“This is what I’ve been working for.”

Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan can speak to the effort Hall has put forth to get this opportunity.

“He’s got a big heart,” Duncan said. “He works harder than anybody on the team. He is also a hustler. There’s nothing he can’t do when he sets his mind to it.”

Hall is Bradford’s current catcher, but didn’t realize it was a position he could flourish in until filling in for an injured teammate. Playing the position now just seems natural, Hall said.

“He’s an excellent catcher,” Duncan said. “I would say in most cases his best attribute is his ability to keep balls in playing territory.”
