Silva is a 6’3, 230 pound junior right-handed pitcher from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. As a senior at Dakota Ridge High School in Littleton, Colorado (2012), he was named First Team All-Conference and First Team All-State, where he went 5-2 with a 2.31 ERA, struck out 54 in 39 innings, and allowed just a .191 batting average to his opponents. After high school, he first attended Colby Community College in Kansas where he compiled an 8-4 record with a 4.27 ERA. Silva picked up his General Studies Associate Degree while at Colby, and after transferring to Washburn has become a Sport Management major.
This season with the Ichabods (29-14), Silva has been fantastic. He is 8-0 with a tidy 2.49 ERA in 11 starts throwing 65 innings. On the year he has 52 K’s and just 18 walks. The Turks are excited to see another on-the-rise talent like Silva take the hill in 2016.
