NOAH standout signs with Coffeyville
Outfielder/Pitcher Andrew Smith of Tulsa NOAH (Northeast Oklahoma Association of Homeschools) recently signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Coffeyville Community College in Coffeyville, Kan. The signing ceremony took place at Stinchcomb Mansion in Broken Arrow.
"I am thankful for the opportunity NOAH has given me to improve my skills while playing high school baseball” Smith said. “It allowed me to be better prepared to play at the college level. I 'm looking forward to playing at the next level in Coffeyville next year." Smith, a Broken Arrow resident and four-year starter for the NOAH varsity, was named to the Homeschool Baseball All-Regional team last season. As a junior last spring, he helped the Jaguars to a runner-up finish in the Homeschool Baseball Regionals and a trip to the Homeschool World Series with a team leading .329 batting average, three home runs, and an impressive .561 slugging percentage. Smith also appeared on the mound in eleven games. He struck out 25 batters while walking 11 to post a 3-2 record and two saves.
“Andrew exhibits great character as a well grounded young Christian man and as a player. He is passionate about baseball and a highly motivated young man. His work ethic will allow him to accomplish whatever he sets out to do. He is a talented player that I look forward to coaching this year and watching for years to come” said Head Coach Ray Blake.
