||Former Eagles sign with Bethel baseball
BELDEN, Miss. (WTVA) — Former Tupelo Christian Prep baseball players Lee McBunch and Zachary Tybor have signed with Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee.
The duo actually graduated from TCPS in 2013 and attended Itawamba Community College last year.
"It makes it even sweeter, just not to give up," said McBunch, a shortstop. "Baseball's one of my biggest passions, so, it's just overwhelming, I can't even say anything about it, it's sweet."
"It taught me a lot, the fact that I still have that drive to pursue the things I really wanna do in life," said Tybor, an outfielder. "Now, besides baseball, I now know that I can chase what I need to chase, and achieve whatever I need to achieve through God."
Tybor made All-State as a senior and holds school records for most hits and runs in a career, while McBunch made All-District his junior and senior seasons and has 40 career stolen bases.
