Goreville Blackcat standout Alex Andros, center, is joined by his parents, brother, and Rend Lake College Coach Tony Etnier as he signs his national letter of intent to play baseball at RLC in the fall. Andros, the younger brother of current Warrior Nick Andros, is a starter on the Blackcats’ basketball team and is an honor roll student at Goreville High School.

“I chose Rend Lake College because it was pretty close to where I live and it looks like a pretty good place to start my college baseball career,” said Andros, adding that he is excited about developing as a player at RLC.  Etnier said he has watched Andros over the past couple years and previously thought he would like to have him as a pitcher for RLC, but after Andros attended a showcase on campus this past fall, Etneir said he is looking forward to having him as a position player.

“Alex is a kid with a big frame who can play first base, outfield, and pitcher,” said Etnier.  “He has a nice swing, stays inside the ball well and should make big jumps with his bat speed as he gets stronger. He has the potential to be a very nice offensive player.”
