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.
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."
