Myers Park Mustangs(21-3) at the Southwest Guilford Cowboys(20-5) on Friday night…..
Put pressure on the other team, you have to be Aggressive, that is what Myers Park HS baseball coach Erik Foor tells his Mustangs every day and before every game….Aggression, that is what drives this Mustang baseball team…..Their offense makes them click and they like to put pressure on the opposing teams, within every phase of the game…..
Bunt, run, hit, field and pitch and do it with an aggressive nature, and that directive comes from the man at the top, Myers Park Mustangs head coach Erik Foor…..
Myers Park athletics director Rick Lewis named Erik Foor head coach in August. Foor is Myers Park’s fourth coach in four years. But Lewis feels he’s the right guy this time to deliver Myers Park its first state title since 1970. Foor, an assistant coach at the University of Iowa last year, was has also been an assistant at Belmont Abbey and pitching coach at California State.
“They put a lot of pressure on you,” Charlotte Independence coach Daniel Cooke said. “They can bunt. They can run. They can pitch. You’ve got to defend the whole field. But they play with a lot more energy and belief than last year. It’s the same pieces for the most part with the new coach. They play like they believe now.”
