Griffin Myers is continuing the legacy.

The recent McPherson High graduate has signed a baseball letter of intent with Tabor College, where his father Grant played and his grandfather Gary was the longtime head coach.

The youngest Myers joins the Bluejays after a distinguished Bullpup career that included three years of being named to the AVCTL Division III team.

He was honorable mention at second base both his sophomore and senior seasons, while he sandwiched in a first-team selection as a junior.

In 2014, he was named to The Hutchinson News’ All-Area first team.

This season, Myers was a vital cog in the Bullpups’ drive to the championship game of the Class 4A Division I State Tournament, where they lost to Topeka Hayden. He also played a prominent role last summer in the McPherson American Legion winning the championship of the Class A State Tournament, its first in 40 years.

Myers will be joining the class of the KCAC. Tabor has won four straight conference championships and has advanced to the NAIA College World Series each of the last two years. The Bluejays are coached by former Wichita State standout Mark Standiford and were an amazing 54-12 this past season.

Griffin is the son of Grant and Cari Myers.
