  • tough road said,

    Good to see these boys still playing. There have been many local talented high school players drop out of the college scene. Good to see some continuing to work through it. It’s a tough raod, mentally and physically.

    Austin Bain from Southeast Guilford has appeared in 5 gamesfor Randolph Macon getting 9.1 innings of workwith 9 K’s and posting a ERA of 1.93. He is progressing well and will move from middle relief to get his first start this week. Not bad for a freshman and he is enjoying the travel squad.
    Justin Reece has made the travel squad and putting up good numbers at Army with some recent starts at second base.
    Dallas Newton threw a one hitter at undefeated Pitt Community College with 13 k’s. Dallas is doing great and several major league scouts have had him fill out the pre draft paperwork. His velocity is in the 91 -94 range.
    Colby Keene has had quite a bit of good playing time at Winston Salem State. He has had starts at SS,2B and 3B while hitting over .300 at last look.
    You already mentioned Blake Butler and Josh Tobias along with Dillon Barker. Ty Powell is pitching well for GTCC and his buddy Adam Kirkpatrick is pitching well at Mt. Olive.
    Way to go Falcons !!
