December 12, 2007
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- Taking advantage of the NCAA’s early signing period, The Master’s Academy infielder Jeff Moyer has signed a national letter of intent to further his education and play intercollegiate baseball at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
A native of Oviedo, Florida, Moyer provides PBA head coach Rob Avila with a solid infielder with the ability and experience at both shortstop and third-base while also proving valuable as a left-handed hitter in the Sailfish lineup.
As a part of the in the incoming class for PBA baseball, Avila foresees Jeff fitting in well with the program.
“Jeff is one of those special young men who has the right perspective on life and knows how to handle the gifts and responsibilities that God has given him,” said Avila.
“He has a great family that has given him the opportunity to mature and be successful. We are blessed to have Jeff and the Moyer family become part of the Sailfish baseball family. We all look forward to the impact Jeff will make during his time here at PBA, on and off the field,” continued Avila.
While at The Master’s Academy, Moyer was named the Outstanding Player of the Year in the District while recently being named to the 2008 Preseason Underarmour All-America Team. Moyer also played a vital role as a part of the Orlando Scropions club team where he batted .409 and helped lead the Scorpions to a second place finish in the Perfect Game WWBA Championships in Jupiter, Florida.
Not only a standout on the diamond, Moyer has also seen his fair share of success on the gridiron as a wide receiver for the The Master’s Academy football team where he collected 775 yards receiving and also scored 11 TD’s.
In addition to his athletic responsibilities, Moyer has also been heavily involved with TMA’s chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes while also being active as a small group leader in his church’s middle school youth group.
With one more prep season still left in his high school baseball career, Moyer is excited about his choice to attend PBA next fall.
“I chose PBA because I feel it’s a place where I can strengthen my relationship with Christ while I earn a degree and pursue a possible career in Major League Baseball.”
PBA opens up their 2008 campaign when they host Barry University on Friday, February 1st.
