NSU baseball adds 4 players for 2012-13 roster

TAHLEQUAH — The Northeastern State baseball team continues to introduce the newcomers to its 2012-13 roster. The latest installment includes two Texas natives, a player from Oklahoma and one from the Dominican Republic. This group of four also features an incoming freshman, two junior college transfers and one Division I transfer.

NSU baseball coach Travis Janssen is excited to introduce the following:

Zach Poehl          RHP            Bowie High School

Poehl comes to NSU from Austin, Texas. He graduated from Bowie High School and played for Coach Rudy Alvarez. Poehl fits the mold of a well-rounded student athlete that is vital for a program's success. At Bowie, Poehl garnered both Academic All-District and honorable mention All-District Honors.

"We first came across Zach this summer recruiting in Atlanta, Ga. He was playing for the Austin Action and his athleticism was apparent from the get-go," Janssen said. "The first game we saw, he was playing in the infield, and did a very nice job. Later in the summer, we saw him pitch and it became very apparent that we needed to get him up here to NSU. Zach has gotten off to a tremendous start this fall. He's having success on the field, and he seems to be a good 'team' guy, and by that I mean one that a lot of players really enjoy being around. In the short-term, Zach will help us on the mound. Down the road he may factor in in the infield, but our short-term plans are to try to put him in a position to succeed on the mound."

Kyle Shambaugh          LHP            Eastern Oklahoma Junior College

Kyle Shambaugh played for Coach Craig Price at Eastern. He graduated from Jay High School playing for Coach Mike Moore. He will be competing at NSU as a sophomore. In high school, Shambaugh received both all-conference (Verdigris Valley), as well as all-state honors. Shambaugh's older brother (Cale) competes for the NSU football team, and his father (Mike) played baseball for Oral Roberts University.
