Brody Fernandez has spent the last seven years being a Boyd Bronco, but he’ll have to get used to being called a Pioneer now.Fernandez enrolled at Crowley’s Ridge College in Paragould, Ark., last week, where he signed a letter-of-intent to play baseball for the Pioneers.Fernandez was a standout on the Boyd basketball team the last four years, but baseball has always been his calling. After the Broncos shut down the baseball program following his sophomore season, Fernandez sought out opportunities to continue his playing career on the diamond.Fernandez always dreamed about a chance to play college ball. When Crowley’s Ridge came calling, Fernandez jumped at the chance to become a Pioneer.“I was ecstatic to hear that a college wanted me to play for them,” said Fernandez.
