Farmington Knights senior pitcher Jaysen Mattingly signed Thursday to play baseball at Hannibal-LaGrange University starting next year.

Mattingly says it was a pretty easy decision to pick the Trojans.

Mattingly says he’s interested in studying engineering or business. Before he heads off to college though, his final high school season has just gotten underway.
Mattingly has high hopes for the year.

With the city of Hannibal a little over two and a half hours away, Mattingly will be moving a sizable distance away from home.
He says he’s ready for that challenge.
