“… Very blessed to say that I have officially signed with Morehead! I’d just like to thank God, my family, my friends, and all my current and past coaches to help me get to where I am today. Proud to be an Eagle!”
Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… Great day for our program and personally, a great day for our family.
Not many kids get the opportunity to play at the Div 1 level. Jackson has truly sustained commitment and sacrifice to get to this point. It’s a great testimony to his work ethic.
I’ve coached for a long time and seen a lot of great players come thru here and he’s certainly worthy of being mentioned with those guys. The things he can do to a baseball are pretty crazy.
Melinda and I have done the best we can do by our children trying to teach the importance of humility and their Faith and service to God. And in turn His Blessings have been abundant
Again very proud and excited for Jackson’s opportunity after this year- but he and his senior teammates know they have some unfinished work this year in the Red and Black.”
