Fresh off a senior season which saw him end his career in black and gold with a strong performance in the District 13AAA Tournament in early May, Dyersburg senior Seth Daniels will continue his career at the college level as he has signed with Crowley’s Ridge College.

“I feel great,” Daniels said of signing with the Pioneers. “It’s a good environment with coaches who want to win.”

Daniels also shared what made him choose to play baseball at Crowley’s Ridge.

“Coach (Tray) Malone’s main goal is to win games, and that’s mine too,” Daniels explained. “The campus is nice and I love the small school feel.”

Dyersburg Head Coach Zane Mathis said leadership was a big part of Daniels’ contribution to the team this past season.

“Seth was a great leader for us this year,” Mathis said. “Going into his senior year, he worked extremely hard for us during the offseason.

“It definitely showed during the season. He had a great season for us playing first and DHing.”

Dyersburg’s senior first baseman ended his career with the Trojans on a high note, batting .357 while driving in seven runs for the black and gold.

“He had an incredible district tournament,” Mathis recalled. “He had three RBIs one game then four the next.

“He played extremely hard for us and was an all-district selection for us.”

Dyersburg’s head coach said Daniels meant a great deal to the program.

“He is a hard worker and was a great leader,” Mathis added. “I am really proud of how he improved during this four years and gained a scholarship.”
