Pitching, Veteran leadership


Berkeley Prep returns 9 D1 committed players for the 2021 season led by the No. 2 ranked sophomore in the state Cade Kurland (Florida). The Bucs have the arms to make a state run. Will Parkinson (Columbia), Evan Parmer (VMI), JT Quinn (Ole Miss), Andrew Jergins (Duke), and Owen McElfatrick (Northwestern) make up a tremendous pitching staff. Offensively, the Bucs are led by Kurland, Gunnett Carlson (FSU), Johnathan Bruno (GW), and Troy Reader (Notre Dame). Coming off an 11-0 start to the shortened 2020 season, the Bucs are looking to continue that success in 2021.
