The 7th student athlete in the Jasper High School class of 2019 has celebrated the opportunity to play intercollegiate athletics. The newest member of this group is Viking Baseball standout Landon Nix.
Nix, a four year letterman outfielder for Coach Patrick Ware and the Vikings will play further his education and his baseball career at Marion Military Institute in Marion, Alabama. While at Marion, Landon will play outfield for Coach Matt Downs and the Tigers.
Landon looks to begin a law enforcement or game warden profession after earning his degree. He chose Marion because of familiarity. He said “My brother went to school and played there, and the head coach (Downs) is really good, and he cares a lot”.
