Gulfport alum/Tennessee Tech transfer Gabe Lacy commits to Southern Miss baseball

The Southern Miss baseball team made room in their nest for a Gulfport Admiral alum.

Gabe Lacy is a talented infielder with a powerful bat who has had quite the baseball journey. Lucky for him, the quest led him to his dream team.

Lacy graduated from Gulfport High in 2018, joined the JCJC Bobcats, advanced to the division I level by joining Tennessee Tech and has now committed to join the Golden Eagles on the diamond. “Seeing kids come through Gulfport in this area and make their way to Hattiesburg, like the Daniel Keatings, the Alex Nelms, and Blake Johnson that’s still there now, that’s always kinda been that, that black and gold kinda blends with that orange and blue down here and we like our Golden Eagles down here so it’s been a dream of mine.”

This year won’t be the last time you see Lacy on the back of a Golden Eagle baseball uniform. His younger cousin, Peyton Lacy, will be joining the Golden Eagles in 2024.
