CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - (Wednesday, November 14, 2007) Southeast Missouri State baseball coach Mark Hogan has announced the signing of Goreville (IL) High School shortstop Kenton Parmley. Parmley, who is also a member of the Blackcat basketball team, earned All-Conference and Honorable Mention All-State honors in baseball his junior year.

In his career at Goreville, Parmley has posted a .415 batting average from the right side of the plate with 121 RBIs, 17 home runs and 54 stolen bases. Additionally, Parmley has only struck out 21 times during his high school career. The 6-1, 175-pound shortstop has led Goreville to three Regional titles and is currently batting .523 during the SEC fall season.

"One of our major goals this fall was to sign a high school shortstop for the future. After seeing a lot of players, he was the best fit for our program, and we are extremely excited that he chose Southeast Missouri State over many other schools," Hogan said. "He is a great young man as well as baseball player, and we fully expect him to have a great career in a Redhawks uniform".

Parmley is the first player to sign with the Redhawks during the early signing period and will be a great addition to an impressive roster in 2009, which includes this year's nationally ranked recruiting class.

Kenton is coached by former Southeast baseball player Shawn Tripp, who was a member of the squad from 1992-93. He is the son of Gary and Cindy Parmley and plans to major in Criminal Justice at Southeast.

The coaching staff is expected to announce additional signees for the 2009 season throughout the week.
