-junior right-hander chosen for State Select team

Flemington, New Jersey-
by the guru

     Congratulations to SHS junior righty Will Beard, who has been selected as a pitcher for the New Jersey Super 17 Baseball squad.  The Super 17 team is a collection of the finest underclassmen in the New Jersey area (players from NY, DE, and PA are also chosen).  It is split up geographically (North, Central, and South) and New Jersey's 3 top flight baseball academies serve as hosts for each section.  In North Jersey, Garrett Teel's Baseball Training Center in Wycoff is home for those in that section of the state.  The South is hosted by Brooklawn Post 72 legend Joe Barth J
r. in Cherry Hill, while Beard and the Central players will work out of the Jack Cust Baseball Academy in Flemington.

     In only its' second year of existence, the NJ Super 17 program has already left it's mark on the national baseball landscape.  Scholarship offers have come from schools in the Big East, SEC, ACC and numerous other Division 1 programs.  As a showcase team, they bring together the greatest collection of talent in the greater New Jersey area and bring the players to the scouts, rather than waiting for scouts to come to the players!  Will Beard is another exceptional arm added to an already formidable roster.

Beard will be the leading returner for the 2006 Spotswood Chargers baseball club.  Before beginning his Junior campaign, Beard will already bring 9 career wins to the mound and will look to break the school record of 18, held by current Pitching Coach Danny Fredricks ('97).  Willie is already one of the top recruited right handers in NJ this upcoming season.  His continued hard work in the classroom has also paid off, as numerous Ivy League schools have also inquired about Will.
