Priceville would get their second signing in one day when, following the signing of Jake Chaney, student athlete Phillip Goodwin signed to play for Marion Military Institute out of Marion. The Marion Institute is a very prestigious school as it is the official state military college of Alabama.

A reception was held in Goodwin’s honor in the newly constructed Media Center of the new Priceville high school. In attendance were friends, family, coaches and teammates. Priceville head baseball coach Shane Hopkins, much like he did with Chaney, spoke words of praise for his player and also encouraged his younger players to strive to get to where Goodwin is. “Phillip, just like Jake, is a great player and a great leader.” Hopkins said, “He served as a great model of what we want our players to be like and how we want them to work and behave on and off the field.”

Goodwin himself is excited to take this next step not only for his baseball career but also for his career in the military. “I chose Marion mostly because I want to pursue a career in the Air Force and I felt like that was the right military school for me.” Goodwin said. “They offered me a full ride and it was just an offer I couldn’t turn down.” Goodwin feels that the lesson he learned and the experience he gained at Priceville has prepared him perfectly for what awaits him at Marion. “Coach Hopkins ran a very tight ship and a very tough program,” Goodwin said “I feel like the strict program that I was in here at Priceville has really prepared me for the strict program that Marion will have.”
