Under the Lights: WILL GREER
Sunday, 13 April 2014 19:19
Chattooga senior Will Greer has become a star at Chattooga High School. Just last month Greer was named STAR Student on the classroom side. On the baseball field the righthander has become a star on the field. Greer has assumed the role as the Indians ace pitcher. On the mound this year Greer has recorded more than 50 strikeouts while just allowing 21 hits and 16 walks.
Greer credits the Indians’ success thus far on the season to overall team morale. “This year there is an overall better attitude on the entire team. The senior class is all upbeat, they are all positive and there are not many problems among team members,” 
As a junior Greer pitched a perfect game against Murray County and this year he pitched a one-hitter against Gordon Central on opening day. During the 2014 season, at the plate he is 15 for 30 (.500).
Baseball has always played an important role in Will’s life and has been a family affair. 
Will began playing baseball at the age of three and has played roughly 30 games a year up until high school where his season length extended to 60 games a year. This summer he is planning on again playing in a summer league in Boynton. Just last year his summer team won the Dizzy Dean 19U World Series.  
In his spare time, Will enjoys riding motorcycles and four-wheelers. He has a Honda CRF 230 dirt bike that he likes trail riding. 
Will said his favorite meal is prime rib with a baked potato from the Wild Flower Café in Mentone.  
Church Spotlight: Pennville Alliance Church

If it were Chattooga Countians that went into Canaan with Joshua and Caleb, would they return with a good report or come back grumbling and complaining?
Sunday morning Pennville Alliance Pastor Carlos Martinez taught from Numbers chapter 14 and 15. It deals with how God promised to give the Jews Canaan, a fertile and rich land where it took two men to carry a single cluster of grapes.
The only thing the Israelites had to do was take a step of faith and walk into Canaan, Pastor Martinez said.
"Although God said He was giving them the land, they began to stumble in unbelief. They focused on the circumstances . . . They focused on their own inadequacies," the pastor said.
This historical account has its relevance today, the pastor said.
