FINNEY SIGNS WITH SOUTHWEST BASEBALL TEAM

Southwest Tennessee Community College is pleased to announce the signing of Jeremy Finney to a National Letter of Intent. This spring, the Christian Brothers High School graduate hit .457 with 64 hits, 62 runs, 18 doubles, 28 runs batted in and 33 stolen bases. Finney is a two-time member of The Commercial Appeal’s All-Metro Team and was a finalist for the Best of the Preps Player of the Year in 2004. As a senior, he led Christian Brothers to a 35-9 record and a runner-up finish in the Division 2 State Tournament.

"Jeremy is an outstanding talent who brings more to the game than athletic ability,” said Southwest head coach Johnny Ray. “He is a proven leader and winner and we are fortunate to have him in our program."

His junior year, Finney was named to the Division 2 All-State Team by the Tennessee Sports Writers Association. In addition, he was a member of the 2003 Junior Sun Belt Team and was the Most Valuable Player of the 2003 National Amateur Baseball Federation World Series.
