Malone inks with CRC
Tray Malone, standout pitcher from Manila High School, signed to play for Coach Paul McFadden and the Pioneers of Crowley's Ridge College in Paragould.
"I'm very excited to pick up Tray kind of late in the recruiting season. He was looking at a school in Kansas but a change of plans benefits our program. It is always great to have another live arm to add to the pitching rotation. Tray is coming off a junior year of 11-1 and senior year of 6-2 so I am confident he will come in and get outs for us."
Malone will join a mixture of upper classmen as well as new athletes on the pitching staff.
McFadden also adds, "With the increase in the difficulty of our schedule it is nice to add a player of his caliber." The Pioneers have added Harding University, Lyon College, Freed-Hardeman University and others for the upcoming season. "I like this challenge and know my players are ready to work hard this season."
