Local Roundup: Statesboro's Ware inks with Mercer
Ware WEB
Statesboros Jackson Ware (seated, middle) signs a letter of intent to play baseball for Mercer University. Ware has excelled for the Blue Devils as an outfielder on the baseball team and as a defensive back for the football team. Wares brother, Jake, was also a baseball standout at Statesboro who went on to play at Georgia Southern, and his father, Mitch (seated, right) is the quarterbacks coach at Georgia Southern. Jackson wont don the blue and white of the Eagles, but is glad to be heading to a school that is still close to home. Its a great location, Ware said. Hopefully my parents will still be able to come and watch me play. Its just very exciting to be able to continue playing. - photo by MIKE ANTHONY/staff
