Kendrick, who graduated from PCHS in 2008, was named an Academic All-American by the National Junior College Athletic Association in June.
Kendrick was one of four Central Alabama Trojans to receive this honor. During his two years at Central Alabama, Kendrick was a conference starter on the mound for both campaigns.
He pitched in a total of 24 games and started in 18 of them. He finished with a career record of 7-7 with one save, and threw a total of 131.1 innings.
His career ERA was 3.97, and he posted an ERA of just 3.41 for the 2010 season. At the plate, Kendrick finished with a career batting average of .302, hitting .346 in 2010.
“David was one of our more responsible and dependable players throughout his two years at CACC,” head baseball coach Wynn Fletcher said. “His success on the field was always equaled by his success in the classroom. His drive and determination made him a success here and will continue to do so in the future.”
Kendrick will continue his pursuit of an engineering degree along with his baseball career next season at the University of Alabama-Huntsville, where he has accepted a baseball scholarship.
