NSU Demon Star Drafted By Milwaukee Brewers
David Fry had one heck of a career at Northwestern State University. He set a school, single season record after belting out 26 doubles this year. He led the team in batting average, home runs and RBIs for the past two seasons. He was named Southland Conference Player of the Year this year. Career wise, he set school records in several categories (At-bats, total bases and doubles), he is tied for most career home runs and is top 10 in several other categories (hits, RBIs, games played, runs scored and hit by pitch). Now, he can add Major League Draft pick to his resume.
Eleven Days after being named the Demon's MVP during NSU first Southland Conference Championship run, Fry was selected in the 7th round of the MLB draft by the Milwaukee Brewers. Fry rotated between catcher and first base most of the season. But, considering the Brewers announced him as a catcher during their selection, he's probably going to remain behind the plate for the foreseeable future.
Fry became NSU's highest-drafted player since the Minnesota Twins took Mason Melotakis with their second-round selection in 2012. He's also the first Demon to be selected since 2016.
In a release for Northwestern, skipper Bobby Barbier said the following about Fry“I’ve said it a hundred times, he deserves everything he’s getting. The Brewers did a really good job of scouting him and seeing the value he can bring behind the plate. I think he’s going to play for a really long time.”
