Lynn Haven, FL---It was a big day for some student athletes at Mosley Tuesday, three in fact, looking to move on to college ball.
One of those, volleyball player Hayden McGee, an outside hitter on coach Canfield's squad which again made it to the region semifinals this year. Hayden moving on to play for Coach Peck and the Gulf Coast program. So she stays local.
Before she signed, two members of Mosley's 6A state runner up baseball team signed scholarship offers. Zach Rhodes a 380 hitter over his entire prep career, signed on with Birmingham Southern, an NAIA program.
And Joey Hair, who now owns the school record for career wins at 29, inked a deal with coach Mackey Sasser and Wallace of Dothan.
These latter two part of a group of 6 Mosley seniors on that baseball team, all 6 now signed on to play college ball.
"You know it's all the hard work our kids do." said Mosley baseball head coach Todd Harless said afterwards. "You know they get out there, we start summer baseball tomorrow, we have a meeting tomorrow. They're gonna be doing summer workouts starting next week."
Harless went on to say "They put in that time, they put in that effort you know to really hone in on their skills and they work hard and it pays off in the end. We don't guarantee guys are gonna get scholarships if they play for Mosley baseball but we do tell them if they're good enough they will. If they're good enough to play college baseball we'll call every coach in the country until they come and sign one of them. but you've got to be good enough and our kids realize that. They know it takes hard work and this group behind me, these 6 guys who have signed have kind of laid that foundation for these upcoming generations of Mosley baseball."
