Koch to Louisville

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Cherokee Washington High senior pitcher Matt Koch last week accepted a scholarship offer and signed a national letter of intent to play Division I baseball at the University of Louisville in Louisville, Ky.

The 6-3, 185-pound righthander is one of the top-rated pitchers in Iowa, and helped lead the Braves to the Class 2A Iowa State Championship in 2007, and to the State runner-up spot in 2008. Witnessing Koch's signing last week are Koch's parents, Scott and Deb Koch, and Braves assistant baseball coach Steve Sonka, left. Scott is the Braves head varsity baseball coach.

Louisville is in for a real treat signing Matt Koch. He is not only a special athlete that throws in the 90's, a very good student, a polite young man with great work ethic. Don't be surprised to see Matt drafted by the MLB in his senior year at Washington High School. He has a real future.
