Three Bethune-Cookman University Wildcats will be playing for the Swift Current Indians this summer. Bethune-Cookman is a Division 1 program located in Daytona Beach, Florida. The Wildcats compete in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference which they have won fifteen of the last eighteen years. Josh Johnson, Eros Modena and Montana Durapau will be looking to make an impact for the Tribe this summer.
Josh Johnson is a 5’10, 200lb outfielder from Tampa, Florida. Last season for the Wildcats Johnson earned all-conference honors as he led the team in batting average, hits, doubles, triples and total bases. The fleet footed outfielder also earned All-Star accolades last summer in the Florida Collegiate League. This season Johnson leads BC-U in stolen bases and is second on the team in runs scored and hits. The Tribe will be looking for Johnson to make and impact this summer in all aspects of the game.
“Josh is an extremely strong, physical player. He has game changing speed, good pop and can really run balls down in the outfield. We will look for him to hit at the top of our line up and be an impact guy this summer. He is going to be exciting in all facets of the game.
Eros Modena is a 6’0, 200lb outfielder from Miami, Florida. Modena has had a very successful collegiate career first at Indian River State College where he earned all-conference honors and make an immediate impact in all aspects of the game.“
Eros is an outstanding all-around player. He is a threat on the bases, can hit for average, has some pop and can play all three outfield positions. Eros will be an important part of our success this season and will have the opportunity to drive in a lot of runs. He will be an exciting player this summer.”
Montana Durapau is a 5’10, 170lb right-handed pitcher from Deltona, Florida. Durapau was the Wildcats’ ace last season earning first team all-conference honors and leading BC-U starters in every category. This season Durapau was named pre-season MEAC Pitcher of the Year and has lived up to the billing. Currently he is 7-0 with 3 saves. He has a 1.51era in 71.1 innings pitched while striking out 58 batters and only walking 10; he also is holding opponents to a .187 batting average. Durapau will be looked upon to play a big role on the mound this season for the Tribe.
“Montana is having an outstanding season. He is a proven top of the rotation pitcher who has won some big games over the course of the season. He is going to be a top of the rotation guy for us this summer and have the opportunity to pitch in some key games. We are very excited to add another high end pitcher to our staff.”
The Swift Current Indians would like to welcome Josh, Eros and Montana to the organization and are excited for their arrival this summer. Go Tribe!
