With the Varsity Hawks Baseball team’s triumphant and empowering record season, notable and experienced players such as David McKay, Grant Willcoxon, Reid Neill and the Martinez brothers have had much to reflect on. David McKay, who has been playing baseball competitively for twelve years, stated that he was very pleased with the performance of his team. David McKay showed great humility when asked about his thoughts on his baseball career. Despite being know as one as Brevard’s best pitchers for years, when asked how he would’ve reacted knowing he was playing division one baseball five years ago, he would have “never believed it”. McKay is going to FAU to play division one baseball, a goal he’s made great strides and efforts to achieve.
The Hawks baseball team, previously coached by Jason Burchfield in the Two-thousand, seven to twenty eleven seasons has seen its best season under Coach Bob Doty. Their record was Nineteen – Eight and Two – Two in district along with winning the Blue Bracket division Sarasota Classic. Our Viera Hawks Varsity baseball team is seventy-sixth in the state. Grant Willcoxon has committed to play Division two baseball at Florida Tech. Grant has been playing baseball since he was five years old, and is quoted saying “ I never would have believed that I would be playing at this level five years ago, I’m very grateful.”
