Brookwood's Moon chooses GSU baseball

Brookwood multi-sport athlete Zach Moon has chosen a school and a sport for his college athletic career by making a verbal commitment to play baseball at Georgia State beginning in the fall.

The 6-foot-4, 205-pound senior spent the last two seasons as the starting quarterback for Brookwood's football team, throwing for a combined 3,191 yards and 28 TDs in that time.

But his future at GSU lies in baseball.

He is penciled in as Brookwood's starting catcher this season after helping the Broncos' run to a Class AAAAA state runner-up finish by hitting .268 with two home runs and 16 RBIs in 71 at-bats as primarily a designated hitter as a junior last season.

"The program's really on the rise," Moon said of Georgia State. "We have a very good chance to do some big things there."

Moon is the son of Wayne and Lori Moon of Snellville.
