Bean will go on to major in Business Administration, looking to open his own sporting goods business in the future.
The second student to sign his second college letter of intent is Caleb Rosado.

Rosado was originally born in Puerto Rico where his grandfather would play baseball with him.
The senior has been starting for the hawks ever since he was freshman and he was able to share how those around help his competitive drive.
