SALEM, Ore.–  There was once a time where Western Christian’s Rylan Webster wasn’t as out-going as he is now.  Going from having to be coaxed out of a car for a baseball camp to now hosting a Friday Bible Study group.

It’s been a crazy progression no doubt Webster had said.

“It’s crazy.  It seems like it was yesterday too,” Webster said of that third-grade incident.  “But I feel like I’ve come a long way.”

Friday afternoon Webster was in the Pioneers Main Gym prior to Western Christian’s boys soccer game versus Banks at Hillsboro Stadium, Webster is a goalie for the Pios, where he was signing his Letter of Intent.

Staying local to play collegiate baseball at nearby Corban University.  One of six four-year baseball teams in the State of Oregon pointed out Athletic Director and Western Christian Boys Head Basketball Coach Gary Hull.

The utility player that enjoys third-base and catching, also has dabble in other positions for the Pioneers, will be looking to build upon his final Spring in High School for the collegiate level ahead of him.

“A local school is one of the biggest positives that was there for me and it was a blessing to find a good fit for me and a four-year in Salem as well.  It’s been nice,” Webster said.  “(This year) will be a momentum builder.  Just being able to get out there and play will be nice.  Especially with last year and just calcifying everything too.”
