Fork Union Military Academy LHP Lance Gowans picks up offer ahead of big senior year

Fork Union Military Academy LHP Lance Gowans Picks Up Offer Ahead of Big Senior YearFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE February 17, 2023 Fork Union, VA: Fork Union Military Academy LHP Lance Gowans Picks up Offer Ahead of Big Senior Year If you have seen Lance Gowans pitch, either with the Fork Union Military Academy or with his travel team, the Richmond Braves, you will know the left-handed ace is all set for a big senior campaign. Gowans, who also plays first base and outfield, comes into his final season after a stellar 2022 across the board. Not only did he hit .400, but his strikeout to walk ratio was 6:1, which is exactly what you need as an arm at the next level. Speaking of the next level, Gowans already has a pair of offers on the table, from Mary Baldwin University and Norwich University. He also has received interest from the Virginia Military Academy, The Citadel, Ferrum College, and Bridgewater College. With another solid winter season, and a good start to the spring, Gowans might also pick up some more offers. He had a 3.0 GPA through his junior academic year at the very rigorous Fork Union, so you know Gowans is able to do the work as well. He has also been working off the field in the strength and conditioning program to add some speed to his fastball. Along with baseball, Gowans also has played basketball and football in high school, to show just how versatile he can be. Here is a scouting report on the Paul Frederick Cobb Award winner: “Gowans has worked to add some bulk to his frame, and it has come with some added speed to his fastball. Right now, he is sitting in the mid-80s, but that is expected to keep increasing as he continues to age. His fastball has some late life on it, and his secondary pitches are also solid. This should be a big year for the senior, who should get some valuable innings under his belt in the winter and the spring. “He is only going to get better, and will be an asset to any team at the next level. I would be interested to see how he does at the plate in 2023 as well: I think he can have a big year offensively when he is not on the mound.” To check out Gowans’ film and stats, please visit his personalized player page here: About GoMVB: GoMVB offers personalized digital and social media promotional services specifically for high school prospects aspiring to become next level collegiate athletes.
