Jacob Edwards’ dream was to play NCAA Division I baseball and now he has his chance.

The 2010 alum of Hills­boro High School has signed a national letter of intent to pitch for the Creigh­ton Univer­sity baseball team this fall.

Edwards was a starter at Cowley Community College as a freshman, finishing with a 7-1 record. He posted a 3.68 earned-run average, helping to lead the team to a 38-11 record.

Edwards will again be counted on as a starter at Cowley this season, looking to improve upon a fastball that is already in the high 80s.

Creighton head coach Ed Servais said of Edwards, “Jake will have an opportunity to pitch in our rotation right away. He is a left-handed pitcher who can throw three pitches for strikes.”

During his senior year at HHS, Edwards went 6-2 with a 1.32 ERA and 95 strikeouts in 53 innings pitched, helping the Trojans to an 18-8 record and a third-place finish at the Class 3A state tournament.
