Terrier, Jeff Skelhorne-Gross, Turns Bearcat!
Just over a year ago, as the Terriers staff gathered at Pearson Field for the first round of the tryout process, discussions revolved around finding a position player that would be the backbone of the team.

The conversations did not last long, because moments later, Jeff Skelhorne-Gross signed in and the cornerstone of a Championship team was in place. In the months that followed, Jeff was instrumental in the steady improvement and eventual polish of the pitching staff, while all along improving his own game. His leadership and catching ability gave them confidence which led to success. The Terriers are very proud to announce that Jeff has accepted a scholarship at Binghamton University (NCAA Division 1). He will attend classes there, beginning in the fall of 2007. His enduring comittment in the classroom and on the field has provided Jeff with this tremendous opportunity. The Terriers coaching staff congratulates Jeff and his family on this great accomplishment.
