Simpson University Baseball Signs Southern Oregon Recruit

For Immediate Release


REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University’s head men’s baseball coach, Greg Cadaret, announced the signing of Cody Coggins in a letter of intent for the 2015-2016 season.

Coggins, who is from Medford, Ore., is a two-sport standout in basketball and baseball at Cascade Christian High School in Southern Oregon. He also has a 4.0 grade-point average.

The 6-foot-1-inch Cascade Christian Challenger pitcher and shortstop led his team to a second-place finish at the Oregon 3A state tournament. As a junior, Coggins hit .394 with seven doubles, seven triples and 34 RBI, while going 10-1 on the mound with a 1.39 ERA. He was named Pitcher of the Year in the Shasta Cascade League.

Cody is the son of Bryan and Marcia Coggins and plans to major in accounting while at Simpson.

“Cody has a high level arm and will arrive with good pitching acumen,” Cadaret said. “He also brings good offensive and defensive skills. Any good program starts with pitching, and Cody will mesh well with our continued progress in all areas as the program looks to improve quickly. We look forward to his continued development and the levels that he can reach.”
