Former Bearcat Furr makes preseason SLC team


Former Ruston High School standout Kasten Furr picked up some preseason hardware Wednesday as he was named to the Preseason All-Southland Conference team.

Furr, son of Heather and Chip Furr, earned second team all-conference honors in 2021 after hitting .318 with 11 doubles and 12 RBI. He led the Privateers in runs (48) and stolen bases (10) and hit his first collegiate home run against ULM (Feb. 27, 2021).

The Ruston native was a four-time all-district honoree for the Bearcats and a two-time all-state selection.

Furr and the Privateers open their season Feb. 18 when they take on Arkansas-Pine Bluff in the Andrew Dawson Classic at Maestri Field in New Orleans.
