“I’m very proud of this team and what we achieved this season. We played great teams throughout the season and we overcame adversity that brought us closer together and bonded this team. This is a special group of seniors and I wish the outcome would have been different but I’m honored to have coached them and this team. They always represented Eufaula with class,” Eufaula head baseball coach Josh Luna said.
