Enrique Bradfield Jr. - Bradfield is one of the fastest players in the country and will look to use his quickness to set the tone for the Patriots. As their every day leadoff hitter, American Heritage will look to Bradfield to get things started early and often in 2020.

The Patriots come into the 2020 season with a loaded roster that includes 16 Division 1 commits. They have 4 players in the top 100 of the PBR Florida Class of 2020 rankings in OF Enrique Bradfield Jr (Vanderbilt), SS/RHP Jordan Carrion (Florida), 1B Gavin Casas (Vanderbilt), and Gio Ferraro (Miami). Their lineup is even more talented if you add Matt Ruiz (USF), Juhlien Gonzalez (FIU), and Kolbe Aven (Furman) to those four. On the mound, Heritage is filled with talent from all different classes. They are led by seniors Carrion and Gavin Smith (Florida State), juniors Nick Anello (Miami), Justin Webster (Miami), and Devin Futrell (Vanderbilt). The Patriots also have three talented sophomores in Brandon Barriera (Vanderbilt), Evan Dobias (Virginia), and Brandon Gonsalves (UCF) to round out their rotation. American Heritage will be a fun team to watch this season and one of the better teams in the whole state.
