TROY—Former three-sport Hewitt-Trussville athlete Davis Burgin is on the move.
Now a sophomore in college, Burgin was introduced as the latest addition to Troy University’s 2020 baseball signing class on Wednesday, July 22. The 6-foot-2 right-hander struck out 13 batters on his way to a 2-0 record during a shortened 2020 season at Snead State Community College. He posted a 1.86 ERA in 9 2/3 innings of work for the Parsons.
“Adding talented arms like Davis is what you hope and work for in every recruiting class,” said Troy head coach Mark Smartt. “His arm strength is his biggest tool and pairs well with a breaking ball that is swing-and-miss. We look forward to seeing his career grow here at Troy.”
While at Hewitt-Trussville, Burgin helped guide the Huskies to a 2016 Class 7A state title and a 2018 runner-up finish. He missed his junior season in 2017 due to injury.
He also competed as a quarterback for head coach Josh Floyd each fall before taking the floor with the Hewitt-Trussville basketball team each winter.
Burgin will have three years of eligibility with the Trojans.
