Round 10
Pick #294 in the 2015 MLB Draft:
Josh Tobias….(University of Florida (FL)/Southeast Guilford High School) 3b/2b goes to the Philadelphia Phillies….

Looking back a little bit with Josh Tobias at GreensboroSports.com, going back to August of 2009, when Josh first committed to attend the University of Florida….*****August of 2009*****
On the phone with members of the Tobias family this morning and they were able to share the good news with me, that Josh Tobias, shortstop Southeast Guilford Falcons, has verbally committed to attend the University of Florida and he will play baseball for the UF Gators.

Several teams were in line for Josh’s services and his top five choices came down to, although, not in this specific order:

Florida
Virginia Tech
South Carolina
East Carolina
UNCG
Clemson

Josh received several offers and he also heard from The College of Charleston, UNCC(Charlotte) and Liberty University.

CLICK HERE for an interview we did with Josh after his freshman year at Florida and he was home for a few days and on his way to the Cape Cod League to play Summer ball….Interview done in the 3rd base dugout down at Southeast Guilford High School….

$$$$$We still have an audio recording somewhere here at the site with Josh Tobias pitching for Southeast Guilford Middle School vs. AJ Williams and Lincoln Middle School, in a game played at SEG Middle….$$$$$
