Brady Barker 2017 Grad Commits to Tennessee Tech University

The Black Knights are proud to announce that Brady Barker has committed to 
Tennessee Tech. I have had the privilege to coach Brady since he was 8 years old.  
It has been my pleasure to watch him grow as a ball player and as an outstanding
young man.  After careful consideration Brady feels like Tennessee Tech is the right
fit for him both athletically and academically.  The coaches at Tennessee Tech are
wonderful men and they have built a fantastic program. I feel very comfortable putting
Brady in their hands for the next 4 years.   Coach Barker


Jamison Arnold 2017 Grad commits to Coker College

The Black Knights are proud to announce that Jamison Arnold has signed with Coker
College.  Although Jamison was a Black Knight for only one year he made a lasting
impression on our program.  Coker is getting a fantastic player and an even better
young man.  I look forward to following Jamison over the next few years and expect
great things from him.  Coach Barker 

Justin Gustafson 2017 Grad Commits to University of the South

The Black Knights are proud to announce that Justin Gustafson has committed to the
University of the South. Sewanee is getting one heck of a player in Justin.  He has
been a Black Knight for two years and has some of the best hands I have coached
in my 16 years.  I can count the number of errors Justin has made in two years on
one hand and he is an extremely good hitter.  I expect Justin to represent the Black 
Knights well and make a big impact in Sewannee's program.  Coach Barker

Avery Ragsdale 2017 Grad Commits to Toccoa Falls College

The Black Knights are proud to announce that Avery Ragsdale has committed
to Toccoa Falls College.  Toccoa Falls is getting a great player who is very
versatile and can play many positions.  I expect Avery to make an immediate
impact on Toccoa's program as a freshman.  Coach Barker

Jalen Malone 2016 Grad Signs with Paine College in Augusta

The Black Knights are proud in congratulating Jalen on signing with Paine College.  
They are getting a fine young man and a fantastic outfielder.  Although Jalen was
only a Black Knight for one year he definitely made a lasting impression. It will be
a pleasure following Jalen and seeing him progress in his baseball and academic
endeavors at Paine.  Good Luck to you Jalen!  Coach Barker

Taylor Kellner 2016 Grad Going to Clemson University

The Black Knights are proud to announce that Taylor is continuing his education at
Clemson University on an academic scholarship.  Although Taylor was only a Black
Knight for a single season he will always be remembered.  He is one of the finest
young man that I have ever had the privilege to coach.  He is at every practice and
every game ready to help the team in any way he could.  Clemson is lucky to have
someone of Taylor's intelligence and integrity attending their university.  I wish you
all the best Taylor!  Thanks for a great year.  Coach Barker

Matt Sharon 2016 Grad Signs with the University of Rochester

The Black Knights are so proud of Matt Sharon.  The University of Rochester is

my pleasure working with Matt over the last year and he has such a bright future.  
It will be fun to follow him as he progresses to the next stage of his life.  Coach Barker

Dylan Schoknecht 2016 Grad signs with Hesston College

We at the Black Knights are so very proud of Dylan.  He is one of the finest young

and his work ethic is unbelievable.  Hesston College is getting a fantastic pitcher and
a quality young man.   Coach Barker

Keiran Liming 2016 Grad Signs with Macalester College

The Black Knights are proud to announce that Keiran has signed to continue his
baseball and academic career at Macalester College.  Macalester is known for their

just rewards. Coach Barker
