Senior Reed Reilly is the 10th player from last year’s Trinity League champion baseball team to receive a scholarship and a spot on a Division I collegiate baseball team, officials announced today.
“Reed has been a very instrumental student athlete for JSerra Baseball,” said Coach Brett Kay. “He is a model student with a 3.7 GPA as well as a three-year starter for us on varsity. He can play any position on the field and play it extremely well. We are very excited for the Reilly family… to play at the next level where he is so highly deserving. He has a very bright future ahead of him.”
Reilly, a pitcher, shortstop and outfielder, has committed to play next year at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the Big West Conference. During his sophomore year at JSerra, he batted .309, then .325 his junior year. This season, Reilly is batting .392 with seven doubles and a triple. On the mound, Reilly is 3-1 with a 2.96 ERA and 36 strikeouts in 26 innings of work.
Reilly recently earned all tournament honors at the Anaheim Lions Tournament, batting .600 (9 for 15) with four doubles. He also pitched JSerra to a 3-1, complete-game victory over Moraga Campolinda High School, allowing five hits over seven innings, with one walk and twelve strikeouts.
