Southwest second baseman Preston Burleson, a third-team All-TJCAAA selection for the Saluqis this spring, has signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his education and baseball career at Crichton College.

After sitting out last year, Burleson returned to the Southwest baseball team in 2006 and was one of the top players on this year’s 33-23 squad. He was second on the team with a .364 batting average and led the Saluqis with 44 runs scored, 20 doubles and a school-record 20 hit-by-pitch. Burleson was outstanding in conference play with a .410 batting average with 13 doubles in 29 games.
