WDAM All-Star: PRCC's Bryson Medious

POPLARVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

After a stellar high school football and baseball career at Columbia High, Bryson Medious was ecstatic when he signed his letter of intent to play baseball for Jones County Junior College in January 2015.

After one season with the Bobcats, Medious realized JCJC just wasn’t the place for him and found a new home at Pearl River Community College.

“Well I signed to Jones coming out of high school,” Medious said. “I thought it would be a fit for me but it really wasn't a fit for me. PRC, they had a great feeling to it and I just fell in love with PRC."

Since becoming a Wildcat, Medious has proved a reliable outfielder. He batted .400 for PRCC in the playoffs last season and has carried that progress into 2018, batting .337 through 26 games.

"Last year, he had a really good year for us,” said PRCC head coach Michael Avalon. “To be honest, in the playoffs he basically carried us, especially in the first round…and he's kind of continued that. I think that success made him a little hungrier. He's really solidified our lineup just having his bat there. We're excited about him having a really good year and look forward to him doing more."

Medious is playing hard and having fun in his final JUCO season. The Wildcats are 22-4 with an 8-0 record in MACJC play. While Medious’ original destination out of Columbia High was just 50 miles up the road at Jones County, PRCC is actually ten miles closer – and it feels that way.

"You got your whole family comes to every game,” Medious said. “I got old teammates who come and people from where I stay just come watch me play and it feels like home."

"Awesome kid to coach, he's got a lot of energy,” Avalon said. “Brings a smile to your face every day you coach him by the way he plays. [He] loves the game of baseball."
