Fox having good year at Potomac State College

Former Elkins High School baseball standout Scott Fox has had a senior year to remember for Potomac State College.

“I have been very happy with playing baseball up here at Potomac State College,” Fox said. “I’ve been happy with my performance. I kind of started off slow, but I got all of the butterflies out of my stomach and have come along strong late in the season.”

Fox worked his way into the starting lineup this year and is the team’s left fielder and currently hits fifth in the team’s batting order.

Fox is currently batting .352 on the season with two home runs for Potomac State.

He is also one of the team’s top pitchers in the rotation and finished the regular season with a 7-1 record.

“Scott is a rare player at the college level,” Potomac State coach Doug Little said. “He is a full-time pitcher and full time left fielder, Not many players are skilled enough to do both. He is a quality player on and off the field, he is a pleasure to coach.”

Fox was named the 2012-13 Potomac State College Outstanding Male Athlete of the Year.

Fox has also helped lead his team to an 35-14 overall record. Potomac State will be playing in the Region XX Division 1 baseball tournament Friday through Sunday in Hagerstown, Md., against Harford Community College.

“I like our team’s chances in the tournament,” Fox said. “I feel like if we come ready to play we have a good chance.”

If Potomac State College advances then they will move on to the NJCAA Division 1 baseball Eastern District Finals on May 17-18 and then the NJCAA Division 1 Baseball Juco World Series will be May 25-June 1 in Grand Junction, Co.
