Baseball friends headed to George Fox
Trevor Winsor and Kyle Seymour join Bruins' elite program
Gresham's Kyle Seymour and Trevor Winsor of Reynolds will join forces on the baseball field at George Fox next season.
George Fox moved onto Winsor's radar during a woodbat tournament last summer, and the university's business school and solid baseball tradition sealed the deal. He will be trying to earn playing time in the outfield with the Bruins.
'I was looking for a Christian school, and their baseball program is just amazing,' Winsor said. 'Baseball is something I've loved since I was a little kid.'
Seymour will try to earn time at second base for George Fox. He is coming off a solid senior season at Gresham where he was named Player of the Year in the Mount Hood Conference and earned a spot on the all-state team.
'The coaches were interested in having me there, and I liked the school,' Seymour said. 'I just want to work hard to get stronger and faster, and help them win some games.'
Seymour and Winsor plan to be roommates during their freshman year. Both players are still alive in the AAA American Legion playoffs this summer.
Other baseball signings include Reynolds graduate Curtis Cosby, who will be playing next season at Shasta Junior College in California. He was attracted to the warm weather and to the school's firefighter program. Gresham teammates Jim Bray and Mark Hunter plan to play with local college rivals next spring with Bray heading to Clackamas Community College, while Hunter will lineup for Mt. Hood.
