Glenbrook's Cody Boyd recently committed to play baseball at Southern University Baton Rouge. Boyd started the last two years for Apache coach Jonathan Hardy.
"Cody has been a real vocal leader for us the past two years," Hardy said. "He always has a great attitude and energy and a lot of our younger guys really looked up to him this year."
Boyd played his freshman and sophomore seasons at Haughton before transferring to Glenbrook for his junior year. He was a big part of a team that won two district titles with a combined 41 -11 record.
In two years at Glenbrook Boyd batted .429 (63 for 147) scored 46 runs, 10 2Bs, 1 3B, 8 HR and 81 RBI. On the mound he compiled a 16-2 record earning the win two straight years in the district championship clinching game both losses coming to eventual state champions in respective years. Boyd had a 3.26 ERA over 73 2/3 innings only allowing 64 hits, 34 walks while striking out 97.
"Cody really helped us on the mound as well as at the plate," Hardy said. "Pitching-wise, he was our go-to guy. Any big game we had, he was on the hill for us. The last two years he won 16 games for us, he was really a mainstay for us. And at the plate, he was one of the bats in the middle of the line-up that we really counted on. He hit a number of home runs for us and drove in a lot of runs. As good as he is now, I think he's going to continue to get better. He's a great kid and was a joy to coach, he'll be missed around here."
Boyd earned All-District honors his junior year and was Co-District MVP his senior year with teammate LSU-S signee Caleb Killian. Boyd was honored with a spot in the MAIS AA-AAA All-Star game in Jackson, Mississippi last month.
Boyd joins Killian and Beau Gipson (football, Mississippi College) as Glenbrook athletes who signed with colleges this year.
