COLUMBIA CITY â€” Though Head Coach Chris Benedict does all the play calling, look farther down the bench to see a pint-sized boy dressed in a shirt and tie at the end of the Columbia City coaching line-up.
Sam Eberly, 6, has followed the Eaglesâ€™ boys basketball team closely for the last several years.
Eberly traveled with the team to the semi-state finals in the 2010-11 season and has spent most practices and every game as Columbia Cityâ€™s junior â€śmascotâ€ť.
Sam, as a kindergartner, played in Columbia Cityâ€™s youth league against 3rd and 4th graders.
