By John Cackowski
State Director

PBR Colorado will be presenting the the PBR All-Colorado Team over the course of the next week. Players chosen for the PBR All-Colorado Team are players that not only performed well during the season, helped their team have success on the field, but also were seen in front of the PBR Colorado scouting staff in the form of a past PBR Colorado event or game. We kicked off the PBR All-Colorado team with the Outfielders. Today we cover the corners.

Nick Shumpert, SS, Highlands Ranch, 2015
Finished ranked No. 1 in the 2015 class and No. 19 overall. Was drafted in the 7th round by the Detroit Tigers at No. 220 overall. 6 foot 180 pounds. Shumpert had an outstanding season in 2015, and could have been the most feared hitter in the state. Shumpert lead 5A in batting average (.600), OBA (.722),  and stolen bases (33, next closest was 18). Shumpert also scored 29 runs, hit 8 doubles, 5 homeruns, and walked 20 times. His OPS was an astounding 1.813. Shumpert helped carry the Falcons back to the playoffs for the first time since 2012. 

Chris Givin, SS/RHP, Rock Canyon, 2015
Finished ranked No. 14 in the 2015 class and currently is committed to Xaiver. 6-foot-1, 175 pounds. Tall, lanky frame. Givin did everything for the Jaguars in 2015. At the plate he hit .515 scoring 25 runs, and walked 25 times producing a .667 OBA which was 2nd behind Shumpert in 5A. Givin also pitched 63 innings for the Jaguars and carried an 8-1 record and 2.10 E.R.A.
