After a stellar career at Spring Hill High School, Dylan Shafer will take his baseball talent to Mid-America Nazarene University this fall.
Shafer made it official May 25 signing a national letter of intent in front of family and friends in the school’s library.
“I’m real excited about the opportunity at MANU,” said Shafer, who will study sports medicine. “I really liked the coaches and they have very strong academics.”
A four-year member of the Spring Hill baseball program, Shafer helped the Broncos to back-to-back 4A Regional titles and State runner-ups.
“Dylan was a member of our team four years and just got better each year,” added Spring Hill Coach David Londene. “He was a big game pitcher for us and we will really miss him.”
Shafer’s clutch pitching propelled Spring Hill to its second straight Regional title match with Ft. Scott when Shafer came on in relief. He shut the Tigers down, and Spring Hill rallied for a 7-3 win and punched their ticket to state competition.
When not pitching, Shafer shows his versatility at second base for the Broncos.
Dylan is the son of Michael and Angie Shafer, Spring Hill.
