Barnette, Fox Ink Baseball Scholarships

Seniors Gregory Barnette and Michael Fox signed scholarships Thursday morning in a ceremony at Wagoner Hall on the campus of Charles Henderson High School.

Barnette, the Trojans' centerfielder, committed to Wallace State Community College in Selma. He will join former teammate Chase Connell who signed with the Patriots after the 2011 season. In his senior year Barnette led the team with 41 runs scored and batted .342 with 9 doubles and a homerun. He also made tremendous contributions during his three years on the varsity with his defense in the outfield.

Fox, who played shortstop for CHHS during his senior year, signed his national letter of intent with Jefferson David Community College in Brewton. He batted .349 with 25 RBI during his senior campaign and led the team with 5 triples while adding a pair of homeruns. He also compiled a 5-2 record on the mound with a 3.06 ERA and 25 strikeouts.

The class of 2012 now has three players who have signed baseball scholarships, the most for a CHHS senior class since 2008. Fellow senior Jalin Lawson committed to Central Alabama Community College in January.
