For the moment, Jeremy McKinney earns a paycheck working as a lifeguard at a local pool.

If all goes according to plan, he’ll eventually make a living doing what he truly loves: playing baseball.

One of two Johnson County players selected to play in the 2013 Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association North-South All-Star series, McKinney is also one of two with serious professional aspirations.

The other is former Greenwood standout Alex Krupa, who recently turned down an offer from the Cincinnati Reds and will attend Iowa Western Community College.

McKinney, a 2013 Franklin graduate, is contemplating giving up a scholarship at the University of Cincinnati to play at Iowa Western, with a goal of better positioning himself for a shot at being drafted by a Major League Baseball team.
