Seven Polk State sophomore baseball players today signed letters of intent to continue their academic and athletic careers next year at four-year universities.   

Signing today were Jordan Barrett (Elon University), Cody Gamble (Liberty University), Brad Labozetta (University of South Florida), David Lara (Florida International University), JD Osborne (University of Tampa), Luke Parker (High Point University), and Matt Piatt (University of Tampa). 

"To have this many guys commit and sign during the early period means they're working hard to earn that scholarship at the next level," said Head Coach Al Corbeil. "It's rewarding for me to see it happen for them. 

In his five years at Polk State, Corbeil has seen nearly 50 players move on to four-year schools.
