Caleb Morgan is a freshman pitcher from Grenada. Caleb came to Hinds in hopes of improving his game and growing into a big-time Division 1 prospect. The moment he stepped on campus the baseball coaching staff could tell that he would be special. He was determined to improve each and every day and every time the ball was put in his hand, he attacked hitters and imposed his upper 80s fastball on them. Early on in the season, Caleb was tabbed the responsibility of being a conference starter. Last week, Caleb took the mound vs. Meridian Community College and pitched a complete game shutout. He struck out 15 batters in the process and was named MACJC and NJCAA Pitcher of the Week.
National Signing Day is always a whirl wind. Coaches spend months collecting data and going off campus to high schools across the region to seek out prospective players. The most difficult part about it is that nothing is official until signing day. Coaches spend hours on the phone with players and can only speculate what players are going to do until the letter of intent is signed.
The Hinds Lady Bulldogs basketball program has had some difficulties over the past decade. There have been years where the group has struggled to win a single game. Last year, Coach Tomekia Reed took over the program and has brought a winning attitude to the Utica Campus team.
