Bradford High School middle infielder Wyatt Collins will be part of building a new baseball program after signing a letter of intent to play at Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville.

Trinity announced earlier this year it was adding baseball to its athletic program. Collins is one of the program’s first signees.

“It’s just exciting to be with a new program because you’re going to be the first team to actually set the tone for the next couple of years,” the second baseman/shortstop said during an April 11 ceremony at the BHS media center.

Trinity assistant coach Alex Martinez said from everything the Trinity staff has heard, Collins is the type of person they want to be a part of the new program.

“He’s a high-character kid,” Martinez said. “That’s really what we’re aiming for. The baseball part of it will take care of itself.”

Bradford head coach Stewart Duncan said Collins has put in the effort necessary to be successful. Now, that effort has led to an opportunity to play after high school.

“It’s good when a kid sets a goal, works toward that goal and then you see him accomplish that,” Duncan said. “He’s a good kid.”
