Cumberland Gap High School was proud to hold a signing ceremony Feb. 15 for Micah Cannon. Cannon signed to play collegiate baseball with Bryan College in front of family, friends, school officials and teammates.

When asked about how he came about the decision to attend Bryan Cannon said, “It came together on a D.R. mission trip. Coach Hasty and I were both down there together and I played in a baseball game and fast pitch softball game and he liked what he saw and started talking to me about Bryan. It was through that trip that I ended up being asked to play for them.”

“Baseball is my passion and I’d like to thank Coach David Hamilton, Jeff Murphy and some mentors like Hunter Bayless and Joe Faulkner. They have helped me so much.”
