Jerry Biller is the starting second basemen for Central Penn College.

Ever since he was just four years old, Jerry Biller III has had a love for the game of baseball. “I fell in love with the game and I stuck with it,” Biller said. He started playing at a YMCA camp in Orlando and with his hard work and dedication, has turned his love of the game into a baseball scholarship at Central Penn College.
Biller played at Brandon High School for Matt Stallbaumer in a very competitive Hillsborough County. Biller thinks that part of his success came from playing against some of the best. “Hillsborough County is the one of the most competitive counties in the nation when it comes to athletes that have come out of here and have made a name for themselves,” Biller said. “It helped in my all-around game. To be successful, you had to compete against players that have gone on to do great things.”
After a very successful career at Brandon, he graduated in 2016 as the seventh-ranked fielder in the country by Biller accepted a scholarship to play baseball at Central Penn College in Enola, Pennsylvania. “Visiting the school, it felt like home,” Biller said. “It’s a small school with small class sizes, and I knew that I would have a successful education. I knew that it was the right next step for me.”
Biller has had a decorated college baseball career at Central Penn. He was recently selected to the USCAA National All-Academic Team for the second time, and was selected as a 2018 Second Team USCAA All-America. Central Penn College was founded in 1881, and in its 100-plus years, Biller is the first athlete there to be selected to both teams in the same season. He is the first player in school history to be selected to the All-American Team as well. He was also selected as the Co-Male Athlete of the Year at his school.
The second baseman has already secured many of the school’s career baseball records. He holds the Central Penn College record with 200+ plate appearances, batting .380 with an on-base percentage of .492, with 39 runs batted in and 38 stolen bases.
Biller just finished working on an internship in Pennsylvania with Target as an Executive Team Level Intern. He is working on his degree in Business Management. He is accelerating his academic schedule and plans to graduate in just three years in May 2019.
When this season is over, Biller plans on ending his baseball career and pursing a job in the field of business. He still wants to be around the game as a coach or athletic director in the future.
