STATESBORO, Ga. (WCTV) -- Former Valdosta High School two-sport athlete Seth Shuman has decided to leave the Georgia Southern football program in order to focus on baseball.

The right-handed pitcher put together an 8-0 record with a 3.34 ERA in 2017, and was named a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball News.

Shuman was a 39th round draft pick of the Baltimore Orioles in the 2016 MLB Draft, but chose to play in college.

Last year on the gridiron, Shuman completed 47.2% of his passes for 357 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

Shuman followed his VHS coach, Rance Gillespie, to Georgia Southern. Gillespie was hired as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, but he was let go at the end of the season.

In his senior year at VSH, Shuman set a school single-season record by throwing for 3,194 yards, completing 227 of his 399 passes on the campaign.
