Braxton baseball player signs with Davis & Elkins

By Shirley Shuman
Brent McMillion, the Braxton Eagles’ starting shortstop and veteran pitcher, recently signed to play baseball at Davis and Elkins College. The Braxton senior, son of Travis and Bev McMillion, will receive a partial scholarship from the college, where he plans to study business management and marketing.
Starting the sport when he was four, he has enjoyed the coaching of his father, who also played college baseball. Of his son’s signing, Travis McMillion said, “The decision to sign this early was hard. We weren’t actually looking at Davis and Elkins. However, the coach (Charlie Goens) was really interested after Brent went to his camp. He called Brent and asked him to sign.”
