Brook Hill's Kern signs with Abilene Christian

It was another proud day at Brook Hill, as senior baseball star Kendall Kerns signed with Abilene Christian.

It's pretty exciting," said Kern. "My goal in my whole high school career was to play the next level. I've been fortunate enough to go to three state championships along the way."

It's a big jump for the two time state champion.  Next fall A.C.U. is making the jump to NCAA division one.  Kern will get to play in the Southland Conference against several Texas programs, including Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston State and Lamar.

"My goal my freshman year was to play division one baseball," said Kern.  "I wasn't going to go to a division two or junior college and sacrifice my education. I felt like that was the best thing for me."
