Jackson graduate Kyle Mottice commits to Cincinnati for baseball

By Michael Beaven Published: August 18, 2014

Kyle Mottice, a 2014 Jackson High School graduate, has committed to continue baseball career at the University of Cincinnati.

Mottice helped Jackson win the Division I state championship in baseball in June as a leadoff hitter and middle infielder.

Mottice led the Polar Bears with a .488 batting average and 32 runs scored as a senior. Jackson also won a Federal League championship, and sectional, district and regional titles on its way to earning the state title.

Mottice played the role of a catalyst during Jackson’s run under coach Bill Gamble, as he hit safely and scored in each of the Polar Bears six district, regional and state tournament games. He went 13-for-23 at bat with seven runs scored and five runs batted in. In the regional wins against Mentor and Hudson, he went 6-for-8.

Mottice also stood out in basketball as a 6-foot point guard. He helped guide Jackson to a Division I district championship victory as a senior, and finished with averages of 13.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.9 steals per game.
