Eric Beagles
Eric Beagles , Coach

School: Heritage

Coach, As the only coach in the history of Heritage High School baseball, Eric Beagles is understandably proud of the recently concluded season. After all, the Generals set numerous program records, including reaching the rare 30-win plateau and shocking the GHSA Class AAAA tournament field by getting to the state semifinals. Beagles said the season turned special after some early disappointment. ?It was the week following the Northwest Whitfield series,? said Beagles, referring to losing two of three games to the Bruins early in the season. ?It kind of resonated with everybody at that point that this is the time to right the ship. They had the right attitude and approach, and it kind of catapulted them for the rest of the season.? The 2017 season may have been the start of something very special for the Generals. Beagles will have 14 seniors next year, including one of the state?s top pitchers in Cole Wilcox and fellow Best of Preps selection Jonathan Hickman.
