Tracy High graduate Brandon Jossey, class of 2010, signed his letter of intent this week to play baseball on an athletic scholarship at Seton Hill University in Greensburg, Penn.
As a Bulldog, Jossey hit .368 in his senior year, when he made the all-San Joaquin Athletic Association first team for the second time and was also the team's most valuable player.
He went on to play at Ohlone College in Fremont, where he was a member of the 2011 Renegades team that finished as the Pacific Coast Conference champions and California Community Colleges Athletic Association state runner-up. He started the 2012 season as a starting outfielder and number-four batter, but is inactive now because of a broken hand.
"I'm hoping to get back in time (for the end of the season)," he said. "We're planning to make another playoff run."
He will join the Seton Hill Griffins as a junior outfielder, and said he chose the college because it gives him a chance to play in the NCAA's Division II. The Griffins went 33-15 in 2011, won their second consecutive West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title, and went to the NCAA Atlantic Region Tournament.
Jossey said that the program at Seton Hill is similar to Ohlone's, so he felt comfortable right away. He added that the Tracy High program, and coaches Tony Crivello and Vic and Steve Alkire, gave him a good foundation that enabled him to get the most out of his experience at Ohlone.
"I learned how to take baseball more seriously and take it to a winning level. At Ohlone I started to love the game even more."
