Garrett College Head Baseball Coach Eric Hallenbeck announced that Northern Garrett High School's Zach Hallenbeck has signed a letter of intent to play baseball for the Garrett College Lakers.
"It's not every day you have the opportunity to coach your son in college. I am definitely looking forward to that," remarked Hallenbeck, who also serves as co-athletic director at GC. "I am not just saying this because he is my son, but he's our type of player. He is a team guy that works hard and gets after it."
The elder Hallenbeck said he isn't sure where Zach will end up playing.
"He will get an opportunity, just like everyone else, to show the coaching staff what he can do," Hallenbeck added. "We are very much alike when it comes to having to earn certain things."
He continued, "as a dad I have always spoken about nothing is worth having unless you earn it. That won't change here – if Zach is in the lineup it's because he has earned it – and he wouldn't want it any other way."
