RHS baseball player Dileo commits to Eastern Michigan University

Rockford Baseball is pleased to announce 2012 class Tony Dileo has officially committed to play baseball at Eastern Michigan University (EMU). Dileo was recruited as a catcher.

EMU, coached by Jay Alexander, led all Michigan NCAA Division I universities in victories with 37 in 2011. They swept the University of Michigan, swept Michigan State University, swept Western Michigan University, and split with Central Michigan University. They also beat Clemson, which was ranked fourth in the nation.

Dileo has been nothing less than outstanding on the baseball field. In 2010 as a sophomore, Dileo led the Rams in most offensive categories while batting with a team-leading .447 batting average, 17 doubles, four homeruns, and 36 RBIs. In 2010, he was All OK Red Conference, All District, and All Region. In 2011, as a junior, Dileo helped lead the Rams to their second OK Red conference title in three years and their first ever state title. Dileo provided the winning hit in the state finals. His 2011 accolades include Louisville Slugger Preseason High School All American Honorable Mention, All OK Red Conference, All District, All Region, and Second Team All State. Dileo, the brick wall catcher, is regarded as one of the top catchers in the state of Michigan and is also recognized nationally.

As impressive as Dileo is on the baseball field, he is evenly as impressive in the classroom. He currently carries a 3.53 grade-point average.

In the summer, Dileo plays travel baseball for Rockford Team Ram. Team Ram is coached by Rockford High School Varsity Assistant Coach Steve Fusee.

Dileo is the son of Frank and Marjorie Dileo of Rockford.
