Arroyo Grande High graduate Jesse Yancosek has received a partial scholarship to play baseball at Biola University in La Mirada, according to the university.
Yancosek graduated from Arroyo Grande in 2011. As a senior, he had a 7-2 record and a 2.15 earned run average. The Eagles won the PAC 7 that year.
Yancosek attended Saddleback Junior College in Mission Viejo, but he was sidelined with non-baseball related injuries the past two years, his father Barry Yancosek said.
But Yancosek resumed his play with the SoCal Catch in the California Collegiate League summer collegiate baseball team. He had a 2.42 ERA and 1-1 record with four saves in 36 innings pitched this summer. Yancosek was 16th in ERA in the CCL.
