Starkville Christian School’s Judah Buckner, middle, celebrates signing a baseball scholarship with Northwest Mississippi Community College on Monday with his parents Diane, left, and Robert.

It was love at first sight when Northwest Mississippi Community College recruited Starkville Christian School baseball player Judah Buckner.

The Rangers liked Buckner’s arm immediately and wanted him to come to Senatobia as a part of their pitching staff.

“I felt like the coaches believed in me the first time they saw me,” Buckner said.
