Owen Teuscher is from the small town of Paris, Idaho. He was born and raised in Paris where he spends all of his free time. Teuscher has two younger siblings that he loves to hangout with. He attended and graduated from Bear Lake High School, a two A highschool in Montpelier, Idaho. He’s been playing sports for as long as he can remember. In highschool he was a three sport athlete while starting all four years on Varsity in Baseball, Basketball, and Football.
While playing his senior year in baseball he led his team on the mound with 101 strikeouts and set his highschool record with 17 strikeouts in a single game. Not only did he love playing for Bear Lake High School he enjoyed being able to play alongside his little brother. His little brother caught him every time he took the mound and he loved it.
Owen is all things sports, if he’s not playing he is watching it. He loves to study all aspects of the game. If you want to know anything that’s going on in professional sports he is your guy to go to. His favorite teams are the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Bears, and the Oklahoma City Thunder. He also enjoys spending his freetime in the mountains, whether it be camping with his family, fishing, hunting, or riding ATV’s he loves it.
Teuscher is such a fun person to be around, he would do anything for anyone. One of his teammates and roommates Westin Corless said “Owen is something else, he is always wanting to do something that includes sports, whether it be shooting hoops or watching ESPN at 8 am on repeat. He loves sports”
Teuscher came to Eastern because he felt like it was a good opportunity for him to showcase his talents and he was eager to help his new team. He redshirted last season but used it to his advantage, he let that motivate him and become a better player. Owen has gained velocity on all of his pitches throughout the year of hard work that he put in and it’s definitely paid off.
Coming back for his second year he’s eager to prove himself and have a spot on the team. Having accomplished that, he is now one of our key pitchers in our staff. We can’t wait to see what he has in store for the rest of the season!
