Bo Fricks to Sign National Letter of Intent with Western Carolina on Dec. 3

MACON, Ga. – Senior Bo Fricks will sign a National Letter of Intent to play baseball at Western Carolina on Thursday morning, Dec. 3, in the Middlebrooks Athletic Center on FPD’s campus at 9:50 a.m.

All faculty, family, friends, students and local media members are invited to attend the ceremony.

“Bo’s love for the game of baseball really shows in how hard he works to improve on his skill set,” FPD head baseball coach Denny Bryant said.

Fricks was part of a 2015 FPD team that advanced to the first round of the GHSA Class-A Private State Tournament.

Fricks hit .310 last season in 23 games played. His on base percentage was a solid .457 along with his slugging percentage of .465. Combined, Fricks’ OPS was .921.

He ranked second on the team in the following categories: with RBI (19), home runs (2), triples (1). He also was fifth on the squad with 22 total hits.

In the field, Fricks was part of a stellar Viking infield. In 57 total chances, Fricks recorded 53 putouts and only committed four errors throughout his junior campaign.

“Through hard work, Bo has given himself a chance to play Division-I baseball,” Bryant said, “We’re all looking forward to seeing his leadership on the diamond for the Vikings this spring and beyond.”

Fricks is the second athlete to sign at the collegiate level for the 2015-16 academic year. Classmate Robby Watson signed with Southern Miss to throw discus and shot put back on Nov. 19.

The Western Carolina Catamounts finished the 2015 season at 21-30 and advanced to the SoCon Tournament before being eliminated by Furman University.

The First Presbyterian Day School Department of Athletics strives to build the student athlete both in the playing arena and the classroom while upholding the school’s mission statement to educate and equip students to change the world for God’s glory.
