Prairie View's Nick Hackney has one less thing to worry about on his plate before his senior high-school baseball season begins.
Hackney announced Jan. 18 he was making a verbal commitment to Northeast Nebraska Community College to continue to play baseball.
"All the hard work, blood, sweat and tears over the 14 years I have been playing this game has paid off," Hackney said on Facebook. "The job isn't done. But I'm very thrilled to announce I have made my commitment to NECC to further my baseball career and education."
