May 15, 2013Alumni Update. 2008 Madison Academy graduates Corey Williams and Kelby Deerman recently met before a Florida State League game in the Sunshine State. Corey, who played collegiately at Vanderbilt University, was drafted in the 3rd Round of the 2011 Major League Draft by Minnesota and is currently assigned to the Twins’ A affiliate in Ft. Myers, FL. Kelby played collegiately at Pensacola State College and the University of Alabama. These two remain close friends and obviously know how to smile for the camera. Corey, you might recall, was the Vandy lefty who was a “YouTube sensation” in 2010 when his kneecap was broken by a line drive and still managed to make the play at 1st Base. Now healthy, he has been given the chance to get to the big leagues with the Twins organization as a relief pitcher.
