Jake English locked in with Dodge City CC

Great Lake Canadian RHP Jake English becomes the 10th GLC to commit this fall as he has signed to play at Dodge City CC.  English (London, Ontario), a product of Oakridge Minor Baseball, will become the third pitcher in two years to join the Conquistadors family.  Jake established himself as a premier arm within the province over the past two years under the tutelage of GLC pitching coordinator, Adam Arnold.  An impressive 2016 campaign would find Jake receiving many accolades including a selection to both the Tournament 12 and the Junior National Team.  A fastball in the upper 80s and very good feel for a breaking ball make Jake a very impressive college prospect.  

English will join teammate Eric Lindsay down in Dodge City next fall and follow in the steps of former GLC Dalton Harvey who will finish his Sophomore year this spring. Dodge City, one of the perennial Kansas JUCO powerhouses has become a strong option for GLC players.  Two years removed from the JUCO world Series, hopefully the Conqs will remain one of the top teams in the nation led by Great Lake Canadian Alumni.
