WHITESBURG Ky. (WYMT) - Letcher Central Cougar Jordan Short signed his letter of intent to play for Centre College Wednesday afternoon.
Short has spent six seasons with the Cougars and has a career batting average of .326 including 105 hits, 4 home runs and 84 runs batted in. On the mound, he has 23 wins in 55 appearances.
"I'm really excited right now. Obviously the opportunity to play at the next level doesn't happen to everyone", said Short.
"I am excited to go against college hitting and see what it is all about. The reason I chose Centre was because of academics as well as the athletics", stated Short.
"Every school has a decent baseball team, but I felt like the academics at Centre set itself apart from everyone else."
