Leading up to the start of the high school season, we will count down the Top 25 preseason teams every day as part of our comprehensive season coverage:

            C Broc Parmer

Team: Pace
Preseason Rank: 
2021 Record: 
Playoff Run: Regional Semifinals
FHSAA Class: 
Head Coach: 
Jason McBride

Name, Position, Class (College Commitment)
Walter Ford, RHP/3B, 2022 (Alabama)
Broc Parmer, C, 2022 (Gulf Coast State)
Jackson McKenzie, 1B/LHP, 2023 (Mississippi State)


Walter Ford - Ford has reclassified to the 2022 class and heads back to Florida for his senior year. Should be a big factor in the Patriots' success on both sides of the field in 2022.


Pace comes into 2022 with momentum to build off from 2021. They return their two top hitters from last season in Senior catcher Broc Parmer and Junior first baseman Jackson McKenzie. A huge addition to the Patriots' roster will be Senior RHP/3B Walter Ford who returns to Pace after some time spent in Alabama. The flamethrower will headline the Patriots' rotation and be a middle of the order bat. Look for Pace to be one of the top teams in the Florida Panhandle in 2022.
