Posey was a first-team all-section pick by the Big 56 Conference this spring, sporting a .305 batting average with two home runs and 13 RBI. In the opening round of the PIAA playoffs vs. Warwick, Posey matched a season-high with three hits and poked an opposite field home run over the right field fence to help spark a 13-4 victory.
A tremendous receiver behind the plate, Posey played a pivotal role as the NA backstop for a pitching staff that finished the year with a 1.65 ERA. Displaying a strong throwing arm, he threw out 12 of 19 base runners who dared attempt to steal against him.
With the help of Posey, North Allegheny posted a 23-4 record this season with a WPIAL Class 6A championship and a PIAA title game appearance.
At Kennesaw State, Posey will join a program that went 29-22 during the 2021 season and reached the Atlantic Sun Conference championship game. The Owls recently had two players selected in the Major League Baseball Draft this past weekend.
