Unfortunately, these fine young men will never get to know what it feels like to play their last home game in front of their family and friends. That was taken away from them all due to the unforeseen circumstances.

They have been through a lot, and I’m sure they will come out of this whole thing stronger and learn that we shouldn’t take things for granted because you just never know. The Falcon family will always welcome these young men back to help others. We wish the classes of 2020 the best.

— TMHS baseball coach Joe Tompkins

Chase Foster: Chance worked hard the last two seasons to take the starting catcher position and make himself into a complete baseball player. Chase will look forward to a baseball season this summer to make up for the lost senior season. After the season, he looks to go into the military and work toward becoming an engineer.

Luke Ferster: Luke worked hard all four years and improved each year. He was always there to help others and help with gear or anything the coaches needed or wanted. He was a pleasure to have on the Falcons! Luke will attend Vocational school in the fall To learn installing and maintaining HVAC systems.

Brice Norton: Brice is an intelligent and highly motivated student. He has been accepted into Dartmouth College in New Hampshire to study engineering . He was a pleasure to have on the team because he was always smiling and always wanted to know more and learn more about the game. He worked hard to become our first baseman this year and pushed himself in the batting cage.

Stone Morgan: Stone is a two-sport athlete and was primed to become one of our ace pitchers after transferring here last year and becoming one of our top three pitchers. Stone was always ready to fill whatever spot and wherever we needed him to play. Stone was a good teammate and fun to be around.

Stone will be attending Northern Arizona University and is planning on becoming a nurse practitioner.

Bryson Echiverri: Brysonis a multi-sport athlete. He played varsity all four years and was a utility player, but his favorite positions were shortstop and then pitching. He has signed with Spokane Community college for basketball.

Leif Csech: Leif transferred to Thunder Mountain last year and played for us and has worked hard to get better. He was always there at practice if he was not at work. He is a good teammate and a team player. Never had to ask him to help out with gear or setting up for games. He will be going to school for auto mechanics in diesel.

Brennon Ludeman: Brennon Played all four years. He was liked by all his teammates and coaches. always a pleasure to coach. he was the outfielder. Loves long walks on the beach. He was always there to set up and take gear and put away and never complained. He plans to play legion if there is a season. always played full throttle.

His plans are to travel and see family and figure out what he would like to do.
