UNG ANNOUNCES 2015 EARLY SIGNING CLASS

November 21, 2014

DAHLONEGA | University of North Georgia head baseball coach Tom Cantrell has announced his nine-player early signing class with the group set to join the Nighthawk baseball program for the 2015-16 academic year.  The 2015 early signing class is made up of a catcher, three pitchers, three outfielders and a pair of utility players and is comprised of all Georgia high school players. 

The class includes Kyler Allen (Pierce County), Zach Bitzer (West Forsyth), Steven Bower(Peachtree Ridge), Conner Corbitt (Stratford Academy), Kal Dempsey (Veterans), Brandon Gaubert (North Oconee), Mason LeBlanc (Brookwood), Derrick Pickvet (West Forsyth) and Josh Profit (Houston County). 

"We are very excited to announce these nine quality additions to our program for the 2015 early signing period," stated Cantrell.  "Our staff put in countless hours evaluating these players ability, but even more hours making sure these players were perfect fits for the University of North Georgia mission.  These players will all be fine representatives of our university and specifically, our baseball program."

Coach Cantrell commented on each of the nine players that make up the Nighthawks' early signing class. 

Allen: "Kyler is toolsy behind the plate and shows a quality arm and is a great receiver as well.  As good athletically as he is, he is an even better leader on the field.  He really controls the tempo of the game and does a great job of working the pitching staff.  I'm sure Coach Greg Gay down at Pierce County has taught him a lot of these traits.  We are really excited to have Kyler in our program for the next four years."

Bitzer: "Zach is a left-handed pitcher with a lot of deception.  He throws three pitches for strikes and really competes on the mound.  We think that he will physically develop here and with that development we feel that he can really help us on the mound for the next four years.  We are so excited to bring in another player from Coach Pruitt and Coach Rickett's program at West Forsyth. They do a great job developing winners there."

Bower: "Steven is a big projectable left-handed pitcher who we feel has a bright future ahead of him.  Steven has a quality arm and throws three pitches for strikes and is a quality young man as well.  We feel like he really brings a lot to the table off the mound.  He has made a huge jump as a pitcher within the last year, and we feel his best days are ahead of him."

Corbitt: "Conner is a dynamic outfielder with off the charts speed for Chance Reynolds.  He is a very physical player whose fast-twitch will play at a high level in any league.  He comes from Stratford Academy, which is rich in baseball tradition and we think that he will have an immediate impact on our program.  He is a true competitor that loves to win."

Dempsey: "Kal is an extremely athletic player who is a premium defender as well as a quality bat.  Kal has been a standout at Veterans High School for the last couple of years.  He can really run and we are excited to have him. David Coffey is an excellent coach and has done a tremendous job with Kal.  His athleticism will carry him a long way in baseball."

Gaubert: "Brandon is a two-sport athlete coming from a quality program at North Oconee.  He is an athletic infielder who has the arm strength to play all three infield spots.  His projectability is off the charts.  His older brother Blake has pitched here since he was a freshman and Brandon definitely has some good genes.  We are excited to welcome another outstanding Gaubert to our UNG Baseball family."

LeBlanc: "Mason comes from a great baseball program at Brookwood where he is also the starting quarterback.  Coach Rick Howard has always helped us get great players from his program.  Mason is a very athletic player who we feel can play multiple positions for us at North Georgia.  He is a quality bat and we feel that he can be a middle of the order type player for us one day.  Defensively, he has been a catcher at Brookwood, but we are going to explore other positions to play him to utilize his athleticism as much as possible."

Pickvett: "Derrick is a big projectable RHP that we are very excited about.  Right now he is an upper 80's arm that can throw three pitches for strikes.  We think he will have an immediate impact for us in 2016 throwing quality innings as a freshman.  Coach Mike Pruitt and former North Georgia player Justin Rickett have done an outstanding job bringing him up over the years."

Profit: "Josh is a fast-twitch athletic outfielder who can run.  Also, he has great potential with the bat.  Both of his parents were collegiate sprinters, so he definitely has the genes to run even better in the future.  Jason Brett has done an outstanding job over the years at Houston County and he has helped produced another great one with Josh. He is a very mature and dedicated young man who will be another outstanding addition to our program."

Cantrell and the Nighthawks will kick off his 16th season at the helm of the North Georgia baseball program on Sunday, February 1, 2015 when the Nighthawks travel to Valdosta State in a 1:00 season-opening game. 

 



 

 

Baseball Inks Two Pierce County High School Players For 2016

November 17, 2014

SAVANNAH, Ga. - Armstrong State University head baseball coach Calvain Culberson has announced the signing of Pierce County High School baseball players Stetson Smith and Zack Goble to national letters of intent to play for the Pirates in 2016.

The pair inked with the Pirates during the early signing period, which began last Wednesday. Both players are a successful part of the Pierce County HS program that has made three straight Elite Eight appearances and finished as the Georgia State Runners-Up in 2012.

"Stetson comes to us from first-class programs in both high school and summer ball," Culberson said. "Coach Gay and Coach Jeffers do great jobs developing players and young men. Stetson has shown toughness and a blue-collar style of play both on the baseball and the football fields. If you have ever been to a South Georgia game on a Friday night, you had better be tough or you won't last very long. With his makeup and physical ability, Stetson will play a big role for us in the middle of the infield for years to come. He has the athleticism to do different things offensively and defensively to help us win games. Stetson wants to be a coach in the future and I have no doubts that, with his character and competitiveness, he will make a great coach some day."

Stetson Smith hit .409 with 10 doubles and 24 stolen bases for Pierce County as a junior in 2014, helping lead the Bears to a 27-7 record and an Elite Eight appearance. He hit .322 with eight doubles and 16 stolen bases as a sophomore in 2013 and earned All-Region 2-AA honors both seasons.

"Zack is also a product of Pierce County High School and Round Trip Baseball with coaches Gay and Jeffers," Culberson said. "We first saw Zack at a practice last spring and fell in love with his raw power. Zack has the physical makeup and tools to hit in the middle of the lineup and provide a lot of power. Defensively, he is very versatile. He plays first base right now, but athletically could transition to the outfield in the future. We could not be happier to have both Zack and Stetson come here as teammates, wanting to pursue a collegiate career together. Both excel in the classroom and I know that their future at Armstrong is bright. They will represent our university and Pierce County very well."

Goble hit .350 with three home runs, nine doubles, 30 RBI and nine steals as a junior for the Bears, while hitting .370 with two home runs, eight doubles, 24 RBI and 14 stolen bases as a sophomore. The duo hail from Blackshear, Ga., and will enroll in Armstrong in the fall of 2015.

"We are proud of these guys and their accomplishment in reaching their personal goal of signing a college scholarship.

They a true testament of what happens when you know what you truly want then work diligently to pursue that dream.
 
They have been an integral part to our success in the past and we are looking forward to them contributing to what our team is going to do this season"  said coach Gay.
