Grand Junction High School senior Cory DeRush is having quite the season on the baseball diamond this season.
The tigers are the 2011 Southwestern League Champions and DeRush has played a significant role.
He leads the team in home runs, batting average and on base percentage.
As a result, his baseball career will continue beyond the Western Slope. Last week, DeRush signed to play at Antelope Valley College in Southern California.
"I'm going to miss just stepping on Suplizio Field," he says, "I just love playing here and it's a great field and i love it."
