Polk State graduates Shane Gordon and Alec Wong have committed to play baseball and continue their studies at Florida A&M University. 

 

"I'm really happy for Shane and Alec to find a home at a Division I school here in Florida," said Head Coach Al Corbeil. "Both of those guys were a big part of our success here this past season, and I hope they continue that success at FAMU next season"
