TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (August 6, 2018) – Tallahassee Community College baseball standout Mason Miller has signed a letter of intent with the Georgia Southern University Eagles. 

Miller, a native of Valdosta, Ga., transferred to Tallahassee after playing his freshman season at Valdosta State University. With head coach Mike McLeod's Eagles, Miller developed into one of the region's top leadoff hitters, finishing with a team-high .393 batting average and 17 stolen bases over 44 games. Defensively, the speedy centerfielder did not commit an error over 96 total chances. 

With a .346 average and six stolen bases over 24 league games, Miller was voted First-team All-Panhandle Conference. 

He had multiple hits in each of the Eagles' three games at the NJCAA Gulf District/FCSAA State Tournament, finishing with a batting average of .538 (7-for-13) and his lone home run of the season. 

Academically, Miller was named All-Academic by both the FCSAA and Panhandle Conference.
