Southwest Tennessee Community College Head Baseball Coach Johnny Ray has announced the signing of catcher Julian Henson of Cordova High School. “Julian is a player that we targeted as someone we had to have,” said Ray. “Not only is he a great kid, but he is a winner on the field. We are thrilled that Julian has decided to continue his education and baseball career here at Southwest.”

Henson batted .387 as a junior at Cordova, and set the single season school record for runs batted in with 36. He led the Wolves with 48 hits, 4 triples, and 15 doubles, and was also among the team leaders in on-base average (.469) and slugging average (.597).
