Maverick Jennings becomes the third White County High school student-athlete from the Class of 2018 to sign a letter of intent to play college sports.
Jennings signed his name on the dotted line to play baseball at Bryan College, in Dayton, Tennessee. Head Coach Taylor Hasty is signing Jennings, who is a pitcher for the Warrior baseball team.
Jennings, who began playing baseball all the way back in tee ball, has worked hard on his game. In addition to being on the Warriors’ baseball team for the past four years, he has also spent a lot of time playing travel ball with the same team over the past four years.
This past season, Jennings threw 16 innings for the Warriors. He was 1-3 on the season. He would finish the season with 15 strikeouts and nine walks.
WCHS baseball coach Shaun Floyd commented on Jennings signing.
“I’m so proud and excited for Mav to continue his baseball career at Bryan College,” said Floyd. “It’s a great program, and they are getting a great young man. Mav has battled adversity throughout his life, and he’s always risen to the occasion. His hard work and dedication have earned him this opportunity. Once again, I’m so proud of him and look forward to seeing what the future holds for him.”
The Lions are an NAIA school and a member of the Appalachian Athletic Conference. This past season, Bryan College finished the year with a 41-17 record and a 21-6 conference record. The Lions would make it to the NAIA Opening Round, but would eventually fall to Point Park University. Jennings will join WCHS graduate Deandra Luna as the second WCHS athlete to join the Lions Athletic Program.
