Boys Varsity Baseball · Spring Sports Senior Spotlight: Brennan Moran


The COVID-19 pandemic has had great impact throughout the world in the last six months.  Locally, in addition to the obvious health affects that this virus has caused for so many people that have either gotten sick and some have died, the stay at home orders have had significant affects on everyone.  One of these things is the loss of the Spring Sports season.  This has impacted so many, from professional sports, the collegiate level, high school and middle schools, all the way down to the recreational level.  While so many have been affected, it is especially disappointing for the Class of 2020 who have lost their final HS season to compete for their school, enjoy their sport with their friends, and have the opportunity to impact others and grow themselves.  Because the Spring Sports seniors will not have the opportunity to be honored at a Senior Night for their respective sport this season, the Athletic Department will honor one senior from a Spring Covenant athletic team each day to honor them for their time as a CCHS athlete.

Today’s Senior Spotlight is Brennan Moran.  Brennan was part of the Covenant Baseball program for four years.  Here is Brennan’s senior biography:

Parents: Don & Becky Moran

Career Highlight(s): Multiple All-City mentions including Fist-Team All-City

Favorite Sports Memory: Winning Sectionals my sophomore year

Other Activities: Basketball

Favorite Class: Lifetime Sports

Future Aspirations: Study Criminal Justice at Spring Arbor University

Favorite Bible Verse/Quote: Psalm 23:4 — “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staf, they comfort me.” (ESV)

Final Word: Not only was it a privilege, but also an honor to have played the sport I love under some of the best men I have ever met. Some of my greatest baseball memories finished with a hefty “YEAAAAHH” from Coach Gossel and working with Mr. Stevenson and the other infielders, doing drills and pushing each other to be our best. Though I could go on and on, I am most thankful for creating a bond with my baseball brothers and achieving many of my goals with the help of and alongside them. Though it may go without saying, the best part of my Covenant experience has been baseball, whether it be furthering our relationships at the overnighters, or giving our right arm for each other in the 7th inning of the sectional championship. Even with the highs and lows of the game, they are nonetheless impossible without the outstanding support of my Mom and Dad. Even with a special needs boy who crucially needs their care each day, they make the effort to support me and my older brother in all that we do. Without you all, I would not be going to Spring Arbor in the Fall, or be able to be half the person I am today. So even though my senior year was stripped from me, and I was not able to lay-out everything I had for these four good years, I encourage everyone to reflect on their own legacy and trust the teachings of those before them, coaches, teachers, parents, and preachers. So I’ll finish with this: Thank you, teammates, thank you coaches, thank you Mom and Dad, and thank you Covenant Christian family. Go Warriors and go Cougars.
