Ben Callahan (Exeter, NH) recently committed to Keene State where he will join the Owls Baseball team. Callahan is the fourth Wolverine to commit, and the second to choose Keene State. He and Tanner Chase are both members of the 2011 Keene State Baseball recruiting class. When Callahan was asked what it was about the school that attracted him, he commented “it just seems like it will be a great place for me to fit in. The coaching staff was great, it’s a nice small campus, and they have amazing facilities.” He continued to mention the fact that it has been a weight lifted off his shoulders saying, “this is a stressful time so once I committed it was definitely a relief. Now I can focus on finishing my year at BA strong and prepare for the fall.”
Any time a Wolverine commits to college, Coach Izaryk could not be happier. When Callahan made the decision, Izaryk stated "Ben's commitment to Keene State is a win-win. Ben is committing to a highly competitive baseball program, under the direction of a respected coaching staff led by Head Coach Ken Howe. The Keene State baseball program is adding an individual with outstanding character who has potential to have a strong impact in the Little East Conference for years to come. Ben had a great visit to KSC and (along with KSC commit Tanner Chase) will bring a wealth of competitiveness and preparation to the Owl baseball program in the fall of 2011."
