Howe baseball player signs with Eastern Oklahoma State College

April 18, 2015

An old adage says, “Go west, young man.” However, for Howe baseball player Chase Blake, he'll be going east — and in Eastern Oklahoma State College.
The senior pitching ace of the Lions signed a letter of intent with the EOSC Mountaineers in a signing ceremony Friday morning inside the Howe Gym.
“I'm very ecstatic about this,” Blake said. “I'm looking forward to it, and I have been for about a week now. I've been waiting on this day for a while. What I'm really looking forward to is showing them that I can help them out quite a bit.”
