Dillon Sudduth enters his second season as the head baseball coach at Meridian Community College. Sudduth spent five years as the Eagles top assistant prior to being named head coach. Including his time wearing the green and white as a player, Sudduth has been a part of Eagle baseball for almost a decade.
During his coaching stint at MCC, the Eagles have captured one MACJC State Championship, two Miss-Lou Conference Championships, and one Region 23 Championship. Last season’s squad also excelled in the classroom and was named an NJCAA All-Academic Team for their outstanding team GPA.
In six short seasons, Sudduth has tutored four NJCAA All-Americans and the programs’ single season and career home run leader. A testament to successful player development over the course of Sudduth’s time at Meridian is the program’s forty-two Division 1 signees, including thirteen to the Southeastern Conference. An Eagle has heard their name called seventeen times by Major League Baseball in the amateur draft over the past six seasons, with one, outfielder Corey Dickerson, already reaching the Major Leagues with the Colorado Rockies.
As a player Sudduth was a two time All-State pick at shortstop for Madison Central High School in Madison, MS. He spent the first two years of his collegiate playing career at Meridian Community College. Sudduth was an infielder on the 2004 NJCAA World Series team and 2005 MACJC Championship team under current Southern Mississippi assistant coaches Mike Federico and Chad Caillet. Following Meridian, Sudduth completed his playing career as a starting infielder at Southeastern Louisiana University.
Justin Brewer, a former MCC baseball player, is the Eagles pitching coach and recruiting coordinator. Brewer, beginning his seventh year of coaching, comes to MCC after coaching at Co-Lin and East Central community colleges.
Brewer, 29, of Meridian, is a former pitcher himself, prepping at Clarkdale High under coaches Charles King and Scott Gibson. After an All District and All State senior year in high school, Brewer played two seasons at MCC coaches Michael Federico and Chad Caillet. Brewer was a part of both the 2003 and 2004 World Series teams. Brewer’s 2003 squad finished fifth at the Junior College World Series while the 2004 team, who was ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation, finished tenth at the JUCO World Series.
Brewer, the son of Johnny and Carol Brewer and the brother of Kevin Brewer (also a former Eagle), is engaged to Margaret Thebaud of Starkville.
