BOONEVILLE – Northeast Mississippi Community College head baseball coach Kent Farris continued to add quality recruits to his 2013 signing class recently by adding two more top notch players from Hernando High School.
Scott Pala and Caleb Goff both inked letters of intent with Farris in a signing ceremony last week and will add depth to the Northeast baseball team.
“I am so glad to sign with Northeast,” said Pala. “I have been looking forward to playing college baseball and Northeast is where I decided to go and continue my career.”
Goff is a left handed pitcher while Pala is a shortstop/second baseman and also a pitcher for Hernando.
With the help of these two players, Hernando made it to the Mississippi High School Activities Association’s Class 5A State Championship series before falling to Pascagoula. Hernando finished 26-10 overall and 9-0 in league play. They finished the year ranked as the fifteenth best team in the state according to MaxPreps.com.
Pala pitched just over 11 innings and held a 1.50 earn run average (ERA) to go along with three saves in his junior year and at the plate he sported a batting average of .322.
Goff threw approximately 68 innings and held an overall record of 8-3 with an 2.16 ERA in 2012.
“This is a great day for me and I am really happy to be signing with Northeast,” said Goff.
“Both of these guys are quality players and were well coached and I think they will excel at the next level,” Farris said.
