Joe Richie will be attending Widener University in the fall! After considering numerous options, Joe found a school that fit his needs academically as well as athletically (The Pride finished the 2012 season with 20 wins). A pitcher with an arsenal like Joe's should contribute to bumping that win total up right away in 2014! What is Widener getting in Joe Richie? All the intangibles that every coach looks for in an athlete. Dedication. Work Ethic. A Positive/Receptive Attitude. A Competitive Spirit. An Unending Desire To Push Himself Further. The list goes on and on.  2012 was a great year for Joe as he posted a line of 44 K's in 36 IP at Exeter High School, picking up 3 wins and a save for his 9-11 Eagles. Joe went on to strike out 22 more in 25.1 IP during the summer, en route to posting a 2.87 ERA for the 18U Stars and added 16 more K's in 15 innings in the Fall (82 K's in 76.1 IP Overall).  This offseason, Joe has been working extremely hard, breaking nearly every Academy strength and speed record! We expect an even better 2013 high school season from him and of course great things at Widener! Congratulations Joe! We're incredibly proud of your achievements!
