Greyhound Baseball Dugout Club

Hello My Friends,

A new tradition is happening at Moberly Area Community College. Baseball is starting for the 2022 and 2023 seasons. Excitement is an understatement for bringing new student-athletes to our community. We couldn’t more thrilled to bring baseball to Moberly and able to compete in the tough Region 16.

As you can imagine, we are busy gearing up for MACC Baseball in 2022-2023. Our ultimate goal is to give our student- athletes the best possible collegiate experience they can have. We want them to carry themselves with pride. We want them to present themselves in a first-class manner and always uphold the tradition of success that MACC has established over the years.

We understand that families and businesses have been negatively affected by the pandemic, but getting back to a more normal life we are humbly asking for your support of our new baseball program. With your support we will be able to provide a first-class atmosphere for the student-athletes – apparel, training equipment, travel, meals, uniforms, etc. Donations are tax deductible to the extent of the law, minus the fair market value of items received.

From our administration to our coaching staff, and more importantly, our student-athletes, we fully recognize that the many things we will do for our programs will come from your assistance. We in Greyhound Nation understand that you have numerous choices regarding where your donation dollars go. With that in mind, we hope you will consider us a viable option. We would love to have you as a member of our Greyhound Baseball Family and we appreciate your consideration.

Thank You and GO GREYHOUNDS

Coach Fletcher

Womack played his high school ball at state powerhouse Webster Groves where he averaged 13.5 ppg with 37% from three point range as a senior. He then attended Division I Tennessee State where he averaged 2.8 ppg, 1.7 rebounds with a season high 12 pts. vs. Austin Peay. He played this past season at Shelton State CC(Alabama) where he averaged 4.8 ppg for a 28-4 team with a season high 13 points in the opening game at Hutch.

Popoola had a stellar senior season at Parkway North where he averaged 22.4 ppg, 10 rebounds, 2 assists with a season high 43 points.  He was named the Suburban Conference Player of the Year and first Team Missouri All State-Class 5 honors.

Nurr was at Highland CC the past two seasons and averaged 7.2 ppg, 6.4 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per contest. Against Moberly in the Orscheln Classic he had 15 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks and recorded five double-doubles for the season.

Evans is a 2021 graduate of Bolingbrook High School (Bolingbrook, IL.) where he averaged 18 ppg his senior season. This past year he played at Combine Prep(NC) where he posted stats of 10.3 ppg, 3 rebounds and 1.4 steals.

Thomas averaged 26.5 points per game at Patterson High School and was named the Baltimore City Player of the Year this past season. He posted a season high of 41 points and 15 rebounds against Poly High School.  According to Colby Giacubueno (scouting analyst) “Thomas is a combo guard with size, toughness and scoring ability that translates.”

Tanksley had a very productive two year career at Frank Phillips College(Borger, TX.) where he averaged 16.6 points per game, 2.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists this past season. He was named 2nd Team All Region in the very competitive West Texas Region and posted a season high of 28 points vs. Clarendon.

Grubbs played his high school basketball in Indianapolis where he averaged 18 ppg, 10 rebounds and 6 assists per game his senior season. This past season he played at one of the top Prep schools in the country(Scotland) and posted averages of 14 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists per contest.

Grbovic is a 6’8”, 240 lb. post  who averaged 13.7 points, 9 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game over his four seasons of club play in Serbia. During his two seasons at Division I Arkansas State he averaged 3.1 points and 2.4 rebounds per game with a career high of 17 points vs. Crowley’s Ridge.

“WE are very excited about this group of incoming players,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “We obviously lose some very good players from a really good team this year but believe the reloading process has started. Womack is an extremely quick guard who brings experience along with shooting ability. Popoola might be the most underrated of our recruiting class and combines elite athleticism with scoring ability. Nurr has gotten so much better in two years and has the potential to be a major force every game at the rim for us.  Evans is a very good slasher who can multiple positions.  Thomas has unlimited potential as his high school career displayed and can really score the ball at all three levels. Tanksley has a chance to be one of the better point guards in the country and will be an attack mode to our offense with his superb  quickness.  Grubbs is a really good all-around point forward who just brings excellent toughness and skill level to our squad. Grbovic is a physical post who can also step out and shoot the three and has two years of Division I experience. Very pleased with our recruiting efforts and the players we’ve added so far but need to finish up with some more good additions as we once again pursue championships.”

Moberly finished 28-7 this past season with championships in NJCAA Region 16, Midwest District and an appearance in the NJCAA Sweet 16.
