As one of only a handful of athletes from his school to ever sign with a Division I college, Dalton Bollinger understands the significance of what his signature on a letter of intent to play baseball at the University of Toledo means to the Riverside school and community.
“I feel very proud to be a student and athlete at Riverside,” said Bollinger on Monday after making his decision to attend Toledo official. “I take a lot of pride in having the opportunity to spend my high school years here. It is a great feeling to be one of the select few from Riverside to be able to play a Division I sport.”
Bollinger signed his letter of intent Monday night in the school library surrounded by friends, family and his coaches.
“I feel honored and humbled,” said Bollinger, who verbally committed to the Rockets in late July. “I’ve accomplished a life-long dream. Playing Division I baseball has been something I’ve always wanted to do.”
