Payton Scott, a 1B/OF from Mississinewa High School, has signed a letter of intent to play for the Owens Community College baseball program next year.

The 6'0" Gas City, IN native led his team to three straight Grant-4 county tournament championships under the direction of head coach Randy Kerns.
 
As a senior, he led the team in the following offensive categories: batting average, RBI, doubles, home runs and hits. While earning First Team All-Central Indiana Conference (CIC) honors, he also entered into the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) baseball record book for career putouts and assists.
 
As a junior, Scott was named First Team All-CIC and led his team to its second straight Grant-4 tournament title.
 
As a sophomore, Scott was the only sophomore to be recognized as a Hoosier Diamond Class
3A Pre-Season First Team All-Indiana selection. Additionally, he earned First Team All-CIC, Chronicle-Tribune All-County First Team and Sports Hotline All-Area First Team honors. Also, in the fall of his sophomore year, Scott played fall baseball with Mike Farrell and Jon Richardson of the Milwaukee Brewers scout team.
 
As a freshman, he was named an All-American by the USSSA, played in the Baseball Factory Pirate City World Series in Bradenton, Fla., participated in the Perfect Game Ohio Valley Showcase, was invited to play for Baseball Factory in the Arizona Fall Classic and was a participant in the Perfect Game Main Event Showcase in Ft. Myers.
 
Scott's accolades don't end on the diamond, as he finished 19th in his class with a 4.05 GPA. He earned an academic honors diploma and was a member of the National Honor Society.
