Spring Valley vs Cabell Midland

SPRING VALLEY — Larry McCloud was known for his big hits, but his son Branson made a reputation for preventing them.

On Friday, Branson McCloud signed to play baseball for Marshall University, where his dad starred in football from 1994 through 1997. A linebacker known as one of the harder hitters in program history, former Buffalo-Wayne High School All-State selection Larry McCloud is in MU’s Hall of Fame.
