Former Casa Grande High School pitcher Matt Becker will continue his education and pitching career at Lewis-Clark State College in Idaho. According to the Eureka Times-Standard, Becker has signed a letter of intent to play for the three-time defending NAIA national champions.

The move continues an upward climb for Becker who followed Casa Grande with a year at Santa Rosa Junior College and last season with College of the Redwoods in Eureka. He is pitching this summer with the Humboldt Crabs semi-pro team.

Becker pitched as both a starter and a relief pitcher for College of the Redwoods last season. He had 33 strikeouts in 44 innings.
