Maumelle High School is excited to have two elite baseball players sign their national letter of intent this morning as family, friends, teammates and faculty looked on.  Ryan McCullough, OF/RHP, signed to play college baseball at Labette Community College located in Parsons, Kan. McCullough has been a three-year starter at MHS, where he plays mostly in the outfield and bats in the middle of the lineup. Labette’s Head Baseball Coach Aaron Keal stated, “Ryan impresses me with his pitching ability.” McCullough will get a chance to pitch and play outfield as a Labette Cardinal.  Abe Young, P/INF, signed his letter of intent to play next year at Neosho Community College located in Chanute, Kan.  Abe moved to Maumelle High this year from Tyler, Texas. Young will see some time on the mound this season, as well as play at third and first base for the Hornets. Abe will be going to Neosho as a pitcher and third baseman and play as a Panther for Head Baseball Coach Steve Murray, who, in his 27 years at NCC, has put together a record of 833 wins and 570 losses.  Both Labette Community College and Neosho County Community College are members of the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference. The Jayhawk is known as a strong baseball Junior College Conference that feeds players into the SEC and Big 12. MHS Baseball Coach Barrett Davis said, “As a coach I am very proud of Ryan and Abe because of their commitment and hard work they have done in order to reach their goals. “ Congratulation Ryan and Abe as you pursue your game next year at the college level!
