BC’s King signs with Co-Lin baseball

Bogue Chitto senior Shaw King has signed a letter-of-intent with the Copiah-Lincoln Community College baseball program.

A right-handed pitcher, King is also a standout quarterback for the Bobcat football team who threw for over 1,500 yards this season as a senior. As a junior, King suited up during baseball season at Parklane Academy. He started and came out of the bullpen for the Pioneers (17-15-1).

As a starter, King struck out 10 against Centreville in a PA win. He also combined with a teammate for a no-hitter against Pontchartrain Christian.

“We’re excited to have Shaw join our signing class,” said Co-Lin head coach Clay Smith. “He has a good arm and is a good athlete. We can’t wait to get him on campus and see him develop.” 

Thus far Smith and his staff have also announced the signings of infielder Colton Womack of Amite School Center, pitcher/infielder Aiden Singley of Columbia High and pitcher Jacob Spinks of Monterey High (Louisiana).
