Major: Criminal Justice
Notable: Cody was a key part of Clevelands growth from a team that didnt win a game for a season and a half since the school opened into a playoff contender this past season. Thats what he says hell remember most more than any individual accomplishments. This season didnt end the way we wanted it to, but the whole experience was great, he said. Its just like the coaches stressed to us. We went from being a team that got 10-run ruled a lot to a team that could beat anybody in our conference. We had a lot of growth and Ill always remember how hard this team worked. He will play for former Clayton High standout Eric Sibrizzi, who is an assistant coach on the Cougars staff.
Cleveland coach Jamie Lee: Codys best pitch was his off-speed pitch. He didnt trust his fastball early in his career but he learned to let his fastball be an out pitch as much as it set up his off speed stuff.
