Cavs sign three top prospects

April 21, 2003

After taking two of three games from 2nd ranked Young Harris this past weekend, Darton baseball coach scored another victory by signing three of the area's top high school baseball players.

 Lee County's Jerrett Dunham, Deerfield-Windsor's Chris Harris and Westover High's Justin Huff became the seventh, eighth and ninth players to sign scholarships to play baseball at Darton College next season.

Darton head coach Genn Eames called the trio the three best in the Albany area and said they should fill some needs the Cavaliers have for next year both in the lineup and in the field.

Dunham, Harris and Huff are played for three different high schools but are good friends.

 In fact, the chance to play on the same team is one reason all three are staying close to home to start their college baseball careers.

Chris Harris said "Over the years we have been playing against each other and sometimes playing with each other in summer ball. It is going to be alot of fun to get back to together and be on the same team."

Justin Huff said "It is great. I have grown up with team playing in all-stars and whatever and it was real fun and now we all get to play together and I know we are going to put together a pretty good team."

 Jerrett Dunham said "It is great because we are all coming together. We have played against each other for quite some time and now we are coming together. We know each other and we pretty much know how each other plays so it will be good."

The Cavaliers are still playing baseball this season.   Darton has finished their conference season at 12-12 and are waiting to hear if they will clinch a spot in the conference tournament that is three weeks away.

Darton plays at Southern Union on Tuesday and will host Wallace-Dothan on Friday.
