The 2018 Duneland Flyers Gates Legacy Scholarship will be awarded to Austin Peterson. The Presentation will take place on February 11th at the Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction at Chesterton High School. The Selection Committee picked Austin because he and his family have been instrumental in advancing the Duneland Flyers Organization. Austin started attending Flyers games when he was just three years old to watch his brothers. He was a Flyer standout as a player, and has continued to be present at practices and games to root on and inspire the next generation of Flyer hopefuls. Austin is going on to play at Purdue next season and will continue to make us all proud.
The $1000 Gates Legacy Scholarship honors Kevin Gates Sr. and his efforts as the longtime President and Founder of the Flyers. The Scholarship is available to any former Flyer Baseball or Softball player that is continuing to play at the collegiate level. The selection committee is comprised of current and former Flyers coaches and players.
