Cooper Marshall, of Traverse City, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball at Kellogg Community College and will begin playing for the Bruins next season.

Marshall, a senior shortstop/outfielder at Traverse City Central High School, was first-team all-district and first-team all-conference his junior year, batting .357 and hitting five home runs for the season.

Eric Laskovy, head baseball coach at KCC, said the honor roll student “is a talented young man with good tools.”

“Cooper’s work ethic is second to none,” Laskovy said. “He will be an impact guy on the field and in the classroom.”

KCC’s Bruins finished second in the National Junior College Athletic Association regional tournament last spring after finishing third in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association with a 17-9 conference record. The team also finished the 2013-14 season with a 3.28 team GPA — tied for the 10th highest out of more than 400 NJCAA baseball teams in the nation.
