Baseball: Another victory for two-sport standouts

November 11, 2010 |  6:30 am

When Tyler Schultz of Lakewood signed with San Francisco for baseball on Wednesday, it was another small victory for two-sport standouts.

Schultz also is the starting quarterback for Lakewood's 8-1 football team, having thrown 26 touchdown passes and one interception. There are still lots of people who say you can hurt your scholarship chances by not focusing year-round on a single sport.

But thankfully, athletes keep proving people wrong. Schultz is also a top catcher in baseball.
