    Congratulations to Casey and the Jones family. The entire Western Guilford community is proud of your accomplishments on and off the field. We look forward to seeing you play at the next level. Kyle, see what hard work does for you?

    Casey and his family are just great people. I’ve been working with Casey and his little brother Kyle since they moved here from Richmond. Casey’s dad Danny is so knowledgeable in baseball that we took him on to help coach in The Prep Stars Organization. Casey will be a terrific college player. His instincts on the field are just as valuable as his physical tools. He is a throwback player. One that gets dirty every game and one that can win games with his mind as well as his tools. Casey can go 0-4 in a game but beat you in other ways. Congrats to Casey and his family and personally, I’m glad the Jones’ will be around this area at least another 5 years!

    Casey knows what hard work and determination can accomplish. Watch out! Kyle won’t be far behind you, too.
