Edwards verbally commits to Coker baseball program

Polk County senior Bryson Edwards has verbally committed to play baseball at Coker College.

Wolverine head coach Billy Alm said that Edwards plans to sign a scholarship offer from the Cobras, a Division II program based in Florence, S.C.

Edwards hit .429 in three games last season for Polk County before the COVID-19 pandemic cut short the year. The senior infielder played this past summer with the Upstate Mavericks Black travel program.

Coker, a member of the South Atlantic Conference, was off to an 8-15 start last spring before its season ended. Two recent Polk County graduates, Kara Overholt and Hayley Kropp, played volleyball and basketball, respectively, at Coker.

The 2021 baseball season is slated to begin April 12, with the first playing date set for April 26.
