In the midst of a world that has been out of the ordinary, our local high school’s sports have given us a sense of normalcy that we so desperately needed. Being able to sit at the ball fields in the evenings and on weekends has given hope that a normal life is not out of our reach. While there are so many issues yet to be resolved, right now we are thankful for a season, for friendships made along the way, for our county that has fought to give us back what so many lost.
Town Square is proud to introduce our senior baseball players to you and allow you to get to know them!
Read more about these young men below!
Ty is the son of Janet and Dennis Foley. Ty has played baseball for twelve years as a pitcher, shortstop, 1st and 3rd baseman. In his last year on the field, he is most looking forward to spending time with his teammates before leaving for college. Outside of baseball, Ty is also involved in Beta Club. After he graduates, Ty plans on attending a 4-year university to study finance.
Kam has been playing baseball for the past 14 years. He currently plays 1st and 3rd base, catcher, shortstop and pitches. Kam is excited to play a full, final season with his team and hopes that it will be a successful one! A few colleges have offered Kam scholarships, but he has not yet decided where he would like to go or what he hopes to major in. Kam is the son of Kelly and Keith Young.
Cole’s 14 years of baseball has earned him a spot as a pitcher, 1st baseman and outfielder. He is the son of Craig and Stacy McDaniel. He is most looking forward to having a great senior season with a good shot at playoffs. Cole will be continuing his education and baseball career at Butler University, and hopes to enter the MLB Draft after working hard to achieve his dreams.
Colin is the son of Chris and Kelly Hynek. He has been playing baseball for the past 14 years, settling in at catcher! He is also involved in National Honor Society and Beta Club. Colin is looking forward to making a run at the playoffs and finishing out his senior year strong. After he graduates, Colin will be attending Carson-Newman to play baseball while earning a degree in sports management with a minor in finance.
Mitchell is the son of Michael Heer, Angela Bye and Mitch Bye. Baseball has been a part of Mitchell’s life for the past 15 years as he played shortstop and pitched. He is also involved in SALT (Student Athlete Leadership Team) at North Paulding. He is excited to make it far in the playoffs and having a good season with his teammates. In the fall, Mitchell will be attending Wallace State Community College to continue his time on the baseball field.
Paulding should be proud to house such incredible young men! We hope that you will take time to support them in their seasons – get out, soak in some sunshine, and watch these boys play ball!
