Flowers signs MGCCC letter of intent

Brookhaven Academy senior baseball player Dawson Flowers signed a letter of intent on Nov. 1 with Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in a ceremony held in the BA library. Flowers was joined by his parents David and Becky.

Flowers hit .409 in 74 plate appearances for the MAIS AA State Champion Cougars in 2018. His season was shortened due to him being a starter on the AA State Championship basketball team. Flowers — an infielder and pitcher — is also the quarterback for the Cougar football team. 

“Dawson has the type of baseball IQ that you can’t teach,” said Parvin. “He’s a natural leader and a hard worker. I have no doubt he’ll be successful at Gulf Coast.”
