Coleman's Whitmire inks with East Central

Baseball standout Tanner Whitmire inks his letter to East Central.

Whitmire will become a Tiger pitcher next year, and he says this is a day he's always dreamed of since he first started playing.

"Well I was 10 years old," said Whitmire. "And none of this would be possible without my family, friends, teammates and coaches.

Whitmire loves what ECU has to offer.

"I just really like the campus," he said. "I like the town. I like the coaches. And I think it's a great place for me to get my full potential."
