St. Louis County (KSDK) - Two Hazelwood Central High School seniors signed letters of intent to play baseball at Missouri State University.

Matt Dezort and Jon Harris accepted scholarships Wednesday to play at the school.

"Both are outstanding students," said Activities Director John Pukala. "Getting a full scholarship before you have played your senior season of baseball is significant in that it takes all the pressure off of them and allows them to enjoy their senior year."

Dezort plays centerfield and Harries, who is a pitcher, have been starters since ninth grade.
