Former Georgia Bulldog Moseley signs with Faulkner
Cooper Moseley, who led the Georgia Bulldogs in saves as a freshman in 2010, recently signed a scholarship to play for head coach Patrick McCarthy and the Faulkner baseball team.
The 5-11, 190-pound right-hander signed with the Bulldogs after a stellar career at Evangel Family Christian Academy, leading the Saints to three state championships in four years. Moseley played for former Faulkner head coach Wynn Fletcher at Central Alabama Community College this past season.
“We are getting a phenomenal athlete in Cooper,” McCarthy said. “He is a local guy who represents everything our program stands for. His character as well as his athletic ability will be valuable assets to our baseball team the next few years.
“Cooper has done such a good job the past couple years that we could possible lose him to the draft.”
Moseley is expected to be chosen in the amateur baseball draft in June. The Montgomery native, who also played second base for CACC, was 3-3 with a 2.31 earned-run average with three saves in 46-plus innings of work, recording 62 strikeouts. He had a .438 batting average with 13 doubles, six home runs and 35 RBIs this season for the Trojans.
“Cooper is one of the better all-around players to come from CACC,” said Fletcher, who played collegiately for Faulkner and was the Eagles’ head coach for four seasons from 1997-2000. “He has a big arm and hit for average and power. He’s a big-time team player. He always put the team first and is always trying to learn how to become a better player.”
Faulkner is 44-10 overall and ranked No. 13 in the latest NAIA national poll heading into this week’s Southern States Athletic Conference tournament in Columbus, Ga. The Eagles face No. 19 Southern Poly at noon on Friday at Golden Park.
