Pickett's Copeland signs with FHU Baseball

The Freed-Hardeman Lion baseball team recently signed Pickett County standout Jeremiah Copeland to a baseball scholarship, according to head coach Patrick McCarthy.
Copeland, a 6-foot-1 utility player from Byrdstown, has excelled at the plate and on the mound. As a junior he hit .456 with 33 RBI and 36 stolen bases while going 8-4 as a pitcher with a 2.14 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 52 innings pitched. He was named to the all-district team as a sophomore and a junior while playing for Coach Matt Walker.
“Jeremiah is very athletic and will fit right into what we are doing here at FHU,” said McCarthy. “He is a good addition to our club.”
Freed-Hardeman University is located in Henderson, Tn.
Jeremiah is the son of Jerry and Margaret Copeland.
