Cornerstone University's Men's Tennis coach Dan Erickson received his third commitment for 2012 with the signing Elijah Yi from Dallas, TX. Yi signed his letter of intent on December 17, 2011. Elijah, who only started playing tennis as a freshman in high school, worked very hard at Brookhaven Tennis Academy and qualified for Texas' Super-Champ level. Elijah is an active and accomplished tournament player.
Coach Erickson is excited about Yi coming to CU in the fall of 2012. "Elijah is exactly what I am looking for in a prospective student athlete here at Cornerstone. His faith is of supreme importance to him and he is an outstanding athlete."
When asked why he chose Cornerstone, Yi responded "I have been homeschooled since seventh grade. A focus on a biblical worldview has been an important part of my academic training. I chose Cornerstone because of the biblical focus of the school, and its focus on developing global spiritual leaders. I also liked the fact that Coach Erickson is a man of prayer and feel that he could be a good spiritual mentor for me. It's all very amazing how God led me to Cornerstone, and I am very excited about what He has in stored for me."
Yi is the son of Richard & Kyungbin Yi. He is currently undecided about a major at Cornerstone.
