MACON, Ga. -- Today First Presbyterian Day ace Noah Takac signed his name on the dotted line to play his collegiate baseball at Davidson College next season.

The Vikings hurler owns a career 3.28 ERA and has 73 strikeouts in 68.1 innings pitched according to MaxPreps.

He said that he chose the school for it's academic rigor, and also for the chance to play Division I baseball at the highest level in college.

"We'll ride baseball as long as it'll take me," Takac said. "But you've got to have the education and academic support to back up, because baseball's going to end one day... and if I don't have academics or an education then it's not going to take me anywhere."

When his baseball career ends, Takac said he would like to pursue a career in architectural engineering, because it gives him a chance to use his creativity and design skills.

He also thanked FPD for giving him a solid foundation, both academically and with his faith, that will help him be successful in his future.

Head baseball coach Denny Bryant says that the program will miss Takac as a player, but also for what he offered the team as a person.

"He's a great teammate, always energetic," Bryant said. "He does the right things in the classroom, you never have to worry about him doing the right thing... he understands it, he gets it. He's very intelligent, and he's going to be successful in whatever he does."
