By ICC Media Relations

Itawamba Community College head baseball coach Rick Collier announced Mississippi State head baseball coach John Cohen will be the featured speaker at the annual ICC Leadoff Banquet on Thursday, January 26 at 6 p.m. in the Student Services Building on the Fulton Campus.

“We are very excited to have Coach Cohen speaking at this year’s banquet,” said Collier. “He has done a great job at Mississippi State and is an outstanding speaker so it should be a fun night to kickoff the upcoming baseball season.”

Recent speakers include Texas Ranger and World Series hero Mitch Moreland, former NJCAA Player of the Year Tim Dillard and former Houston Astros skipper Dave Clark.

“We’ve been blessed with a lot of great players to come from our programs over the years and equally blessed to have them come back to continuing being a part of our program after they have found highly success careers in the big league,” said Collier.

The event is open to the public with a silent auction and pre-event meal. Tickets can be order through Coach Collier by calling 662-862-8118.
