The coach said he will meet with his new team on Tuesday.
“We’ll be starting summer games the following week,” he added.
Eubanks turned in his resignation in late April at Cass High after having coached the Colonels to six consecutive winning seasons, compiling a 105-57 record. He has accumulated 280 victories during his career.
The coach holds the record for the most regular-season victories at Cass High, which was set in 2010, when the Colonels won 20 games.
Eubanks is familiar with Bowdon, having played the Red Devils when he coached at Landmark Christian, in Fairburn, and the two teams were region foes.
He said Bowdon has a proud baseball tradition, having finished as state
runners-up in 2002 and 2003.
“Bowdon is a community that has a lot of pride. To them, their sports and their school are important,” he said.
Eubanks said his goal at Bowdon, like at Cass, “will be to field a team that can compete to play in the state playoffs.”
He said he has talked to others familiar with the community and believes the talent pool is deep enough at the school to do that.
Eubanks is taking over a program that is stepping up a classification in the coming season, moving from Region 6-A, where it earned a 9-15 overall record the past year, to Region 5-AA, where its opponents will include such teams as Temple, Bremen and Heard County.
“I am looking forward to going there,” he said.
The coach said taking over at the school will provide him with a new challenge, something he relishes.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to be at four places where I’ve helped rebuild their programs,” he said. “I’ve had some success at that, and I get a chance to do it a fifth time.
“It’s recharged my batteries, and I’m looking forward to doing that at Bowdon, too.”
The coach said he is grateful for the six years he’s spent at Cass and has tried to express his thanks to the community for the opportunity it gave him and the support it provided.
“Also, although I’ll be a Red Devil, l’ll still have Colonel blue running through my blood,” he added.
