Bridgeport's Troy Anderson Signs To Play Baseball At Maryland Eastern Shore

Posted: Updated:

There may not have been a more valuable athlete to Bridgeport High School last year than Troy Anderson.

The kid did it all, from being the starting quarterback on the Indians football team, all the way to the starting catcher on the Bridgeport baseball squad.

On Tuesday, he finally broke the silence as he signed his Letter Of Intent. Anderson will attend the University of Maryland Eastern Shore on a baseball scholarship.

Maryland Eastern Shore is a Division-I school and competes in the MEAC, or otherwise known as the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

He said everything about the school was picture perfect.

Nearly all of last year's local athletes have already signed their letters of intent. But he said the process took just a bit longer for him.

"I was a little under pressure. I had previously been interested in another school. But they had fired their coach. So I was kind of put in a spot where I either go to a school where I don't know the coach, or I go to a school where I know the coach and know a little bit more about him. So I kind of just went out there and tried to see if I could go anywhere else and I made it happen," Anderson said.
