HOMETOWN (PREVIOUS SCHOOL) Senatobia, Miss. (Senatobia H.S.)

Coach Fletcher Quote:
"Preston Embrey is a senior outfielder. He was an infielder who we moved to the outfield at the end of last season and it worked out well for him. He runs fairly well, and plays the game extremely hard. Every year that Preston has been here he has started the season in a backup role and found his way into the starting lineup. I applaud everything he has done here, his grades, his academic and his social standing. He is the kind of guy we want as a Lipscomb baseball player."
