CRESTVIEW — If there is an epitome of a bulldog on the Crestview baseball team, Roman Donofro would be that player.

Standing only 5-foot-7 or 5-foot-8, Donofro, a pitcher and outfielder, won't blow you over with his size, until you start measuring the size of this Bulldog's fight.

Donofro fulfilled a dream Monday when he signed a baseball scholarship to play for Jefferson Davis Community College in Brewton, Ala. Donofro's teammate, Davis Champion, also signed with the Warhawks on Monday.

Donofro, also a standout on the Crestview basketball team, said his reason in picking Jeff Davis and baseball was simple.

"I just felt like it was a good fit for me," he said. "It just seemed like the place to be.

"Baseball has always been my No. 1 focus and priority. It's always been what I wanted to go further in."

Donofro's abilities on the baseball diamond surpass the mound. When he's not pitching, he's often in the outfield for the Bulldogs.
