Dylan Remphrey signs his National Letter of Intent to play baseball at Anne Arundel Community College.

On November 8, senior Dylan Remphrey signed his National Letter of Intent to continue his baseball career at Anne Arundel Community College. 

Remphrey has always known that he has wanted to continue his baseball career into college and beyond, hoping to get his associates degree and attend a different college after Anne Arundel, continuing his baseball career there as well. At Anne Arundel Community College, remphrey will study engineering.

“They [Anne Arundel Community College]  had the ability that once you graduate, you can get your associates [degree] at any college in Maryland, as well as having the next two years to grow and develop as an athlete,” Remphrey said.

Remphrey has been playing baseball for as long as he can remember. He played T-ball from a young age and has also played travel baseball.

“I pitch, and I also play first base,” said Remphrey. “I am going to Anne Arundel mainly as a pitcher.” 

Remphrey’s parents say that from an early age they knew their son was meant to play baseball. The family shared a lot of memories surrounding Remphrey’s early childhood and baseball.

One of Remphrey’s most fond memories of baseball was at a playoff game between North Hagerstown and Linganore, when he scored a homerun when Linganore was losing.

“He broke a lot of dishes in the house playing with a baseball,” said Remphrey’s father, Chris Remphrey.

“He always enjoyed mimicking what he was watching on TV,” Remphrey’s mother, Kristy Remphrey , said. “He chose [Anne Arundel Community College] himself. He’s looked at a lot of schools, talked to a lot of coaches and even got some advice from his own coach [about where to go to college].”

Linganore High School (LHS) varsity baseball coach Bill Long strongly praised Remphrey from the Signing Day podium. 

“He just wants to be on the field, and he wants to compete,” said Long.

According to Long, Remphrey has demonstrated drive and perseverance in his baseball career at Linganore. He shared one particular example in which Remphrey was recovering from appendecitis.

“Shortly after the procedure to fix the appendicitis, he was out there, chopping at the bit, ready to go,” said Long. “That’s just the kind of kid that Dylan is.”
