Former PCHS baseball players are UWG team captains

Two Pike County baseball players are showing off their baseball skills at a collegiate level. Blake Parrott and Cory Watts are leading the University of West Georgia Wolves as team captains this year. ”Blake and Cory will be and have been excellent captains so far. They both have played on successful teams in the past and worked hard to get where they’re at today,” said UWG Wolves head coach Skip Fite. “They’re trusted and respected by their teammates. This is key in being a good captain.” Parrott, of Meansville, is the son of Greg and Dee Parrott. He played Pike baseball under coach Don Hanson, lettered three years in football and became a 2005 All-State selection. He was awarded the 2009 National Junior College Gold Glove and plays first base for the Wolves as a junior. He is majoring in history with a minor in secondary education. Watts, of Williamson, is a junior at UWG majoring in engineering. He also played Pirate baseball under Hanson. He played at Southern Union State Community College under head coach Joe Jordan before moving to UWG. He is the son of Terri Watts and is 22 years old.
