Drew Farmer, a junior at Rockford High School, commits to play baseball at Western Michigan University.

Farmer, the speedy lefty, is regarded as one of the fastest baseball players in the state of Michigan. He has been clocked at running a 60-yard dash in 6.65. Farmer, the leadoff batter, also hits with extra base power and plays strong defense in the outfield for the Rams.

As impressive as he is on the baseball field, Farmer is even more impressive in the classroom. He currently carries a 3.95 grade-point average.

In the summer, Farmer plays travel baseball for Rockford Team Ram. Team Ram is coached by RHS varsity baseball Assistant Coach Steve Fusee.

Farmer is the son of Steve and Kathy Farmer of Rockford.
