Drew Kendall
. Kendall led the Cobras in 2017 in batting with a .338 average. He drove in 15 runs with four doubles. He is an athletic outfielder who is  a true middle of the order bat for Park Vista and will look to lead the way offensively in 2018.

RHP James Marinan (Dodgers 4th Round)
LHP Emanuel Fernandez (Miami Dade)
C Joe Kelly (NYIT)

The Park Vista Cobras come into 2018 with a talent filled team. After going 221-5 in 2017, they will look to replace their top two arms in James Marinan who was taken in the 4th round of the MLB Draft by the LA Dodgers and Emanuel Fernandez who moved on to Miami Dade College. Looking to made a big impact on the mound this season will be Brendan Bell, who was 2-0 with a save with a 0.00 ERA in 18.2 innings. Offensively, they will lean on Drew Kendall, who led the team in hitting in 2017. They have a talented offense with a lot of potential. With players like LSU commit Andrew Lee and Taylor Clapp, they will have a chance to score a lot of runs. The talented roster brings Park Vista in at No 15 in the Preseason Power25.
