Brian Doran Bound For University Of Maine
After having to sort through several scholarship offers over the past few weeks, Terriers outfielder Brian Doran has selected the University of Maine (NCAA D1) as his US college destination.
Brian is an excellent athlete that also excels in the classroom.
He has worked very hard away from the field and has impressed numerous college and pro scouts with his physical makeup. Brian has tremendous arm strength, and is a daunting presence, hitting from the left side in the heart of the Terriers order. Maine Head Coach Steve Trimper looks forward to the mix of power and average Brian will bring to the Black Bears lineup.
The University of Maine was founded in 1868 and is located in Orono, Maine. The gorgeous campus and facilities sit along the banks of the Stillwater River. The Black Bears baseball program is steeped in tradition and has been to the College World Series on five occasions. They compete in the America East Conference.
This past summer Brian represented Ontario at the 17u Canada Cup National Championship in Kindersley, Saskatchewan. Following the tournament he was selected to Canada's Junior National Team. At the completion of the Terriers fall schedule, Brian will travel to Disney's Wide World of Sports with Team Canada. While in Orlando he will practice and compete against MLB Fall Instructional Teams.
Congratulations to Brian and the Doran family on this scholarship to the University of Maine!
