CRESTVIEW — Wednesday was unforgettable for a Crestview High School senior who glimpsed his promising future.

That morning, Seth Thomason, 18, signed a baseball scholarship to play for the Alabama Southern Eagles.

"I plan to be a hard worker for them," the teen said.

Classmates and family members gathered in the CHS media center to congratulate Thomason, who plays first base for the Bulldogs.

Crestview baseball coach Tim Gillis and Alabama Southern head coach Daniel Head have no doubt that Thomason will add value to the Eagles baseball team.

"His work ethic has been tremendous," Gillis said. "He has made himself into an above average defender at first (base)."

In addition, Thomason has continued to produce on offense, Gillis said.
