Future Blue Raider
Ford, Bearden standout shortstop, picks MTSU


Ryan Ford, Bearden High School senior All-District 4-AAA shortstop, has made Blue Raider Country his college choice.

Ford, chosen the team's top defensive player by BHS head coach Matt Buckner on top of his offensive contributions, has committed to Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro, of the Sun Belt Conference.


“He was really our heart and soul on defense last year,” Buckner said. “He only made eight errors in 41 games this past season, that's pretty good. ... He was outstanding for us defensively last year.

“He's a hard-nosed, scrappy ballplayer, very consistent, a very skilled player also,” Buckner added. “Offensively, too, he's our lead-off hitter. Good bunter, good on-base percentage [.420].”

Ford hit .361 last season and was second on the team in hits with 53. National signing period is in November.
