EDDYVILLE, IA – William Penn University Athletics, along with Ottumwa Radio Group, want to congratulate Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont baseball player Jared McCrea, our 97.7 KOTM-FM Athlete of the Week!
In his final season on the diamond for the Rockets, the senior hit a team-high .373 with five home runs, 37 RBI, and 37 runs scored, all tops on the roster as well. He also was dominant on the mound, leading EBF with 50 innings pitched while maintaining a 1.26 ERA and striking out 70 batters. For his performance, McCrea was named a Class 2A second-team all-state outfielder by the Iowa High School Baseball Coaches Association.
Our KOTM-FM Athlete of the Week program is made possible thanks to the generosity of William Penn University, and the cooperation of our area schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating Jared McCrea! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
