Pat Coughlin Catches Scholarship At Maine
Terrier's catcher Pat Coughlin recently visited the University of Maine and was very impressed by the campus and it's fantastic baseball facilities.
A scholarship offer followed and Pat has committed to the Black Bears.
Coughlin has been a big part of Terriers baseball for the past three years. He joined the program as a 15 year old, and made the transition to catching a year and a half ago. He has steadily improved his craft and worked hard at the skill set required to play the very demanding position.
Pat's work ethic, an ongoing weekly regiment of strength training, catching bullpens, and countless rounds of batting practice put him on this course to NCAA D1 baseball.
The University of Maine is located in the town of Orono along the banks of the Stillwater River. It is one of New England's premier universities. Maine offers 88 bachelor's degree programs, 70 master's degree programs, and 30 doctoral programs. Pat will be studying kinesiology at Maine.
The Black Bears play in the NCAA D1 America East Conference. They regularly open their very tough schedule in the south with the likes of Clemson, Florida State and Stetson.
Pat not only provides leadership to the pitching staff but also in the dugout and off the field in several capacities. This has not gone unrecognized by the Terriers coaching staff. Congratulations to Pat and his family.
