Milford High School senior Philip Berry recently completed his high school career and will move on to play baseball at NCAA Division I University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) on a combined athletic and academic scholarship this fall. At graduation last Thursday night, he received the Captain James H. Johnson Jr. Outstanding Athlete Award, as voted on by the MHS coaching staff.

philip berry Berry displayed commitment and passion toward his education and sports during past four years. He participated in multiple Advanced

Placement classes, Leo Club, Varsity Club, baseball, swimming and even kicked for the football team while playing in-season soccer. The dedicated student-athlete also trained in the weight room many mornings before school.

“He’s a team player, always talking, and never gives up,” said MHS senior teammate Dylan Sammons, who has played alongside Berry since Little League and also joined him as part of the varsity baseball team which competed in the past three DIAA state tournaments. “He’ll carry all of those traits with him to the collegiate level and do really well.”

At UMES, Berry plans to major in physical therapy and continue playing infield and pitching. He said the greatest lesson he has learned through school which he will take with him to college is “There is no excuse for not working as hard as possible.”

Milford High School baseball head coach Nicholas Brannan said that his new coach and teammates at UMES will fall in love with him in the same way his past coaches and teammates have. “When people ask me what I expect the ideal baseball player to resemble, the answer is simple: he must be coachable, have a motor that doesn’t stop, care more about this teammates than he does himself, doesn’t make excuses, is a good student and son, and a giving young man. I could just say find Philip Berry,” said Coach Brannan.
