Stone went on to pitch for George Mason University, where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Administration of Justice. Now employed with the Fairfax County Police Department, Stone has earned a Meritorious Action Award, Certificate of Valor, and the Life Saving Award.
“When I finished high school, I was unsure of where I wanted to continue my baseball career. A coach suggested Frederick Community College as an option. I made the trip up and met Coach Bennett. I immediately felt at home at FCC and submitted my application. Coach Bennett and Coach Evans were by far the best coaches I have ever had. Their character and dedication to the players was extremely encouraging. They helped me grow and develop as a player. The two years I spent at FCC will always be the favorite years of my career.” -Philip Stone, Jr.
