Jerry Neeley, baseball standout at Glen Este, inks with first-year UC Clermont

Jerry Neeley, a star on the Glen Este High School baseball mound, has signed a collegiate letter-of-intent to attend the University of Cincinnati’s Clermont College.

Neeley will be a member of the first Courgar baseball team that will play its home games at Midland Field.

As his major course of study the Trojan right hander is “leaning toward business.”

At Glen Este, Neeley played baseball all four seasons and lettered as a junior and senior. He earned the school’s Cy Young Award for his pitching talents.

He pointed to a pair of games as standouts of his outstanding career on the diamond.

“We shut out McNick this year and I thought that was really good,” he said. “We played really good as a team and I pitched a good full game against LaSalle last year.”
