X-FACTOR
Kyle Mock. Mock, who led the team in average at .409, runs with 30, RBIs with 33 and home runs with 7 in 2018, returns for his senior year looking to carry the offense and the Hornets to a 5a State Title.

OUTLOOK
Returning the majority of their starting lineup and pitching rotation, while adding talented underclassmen and Stetson recruit Dominic Scavone, the Hornets look primed for a 5a State Title run. The offense will be led by Troy recruit Kyle Mock. Mock, who led the team in average at .409, runs with 30, RBIs with 33 and home runs with 7 in 2018, returns for his senior year looking to carry the offense and the Hornets to a 5a State Title. The offense will be bolstered by West Virginia recruit McGwire Holbrook who batted .333 as a sophomore, Coastal Carolina recruit Dale Thomas, Bethune-Cookman recruit Fabian Escalante and many more talented returners. Jack McRae retuns to lead the charge on the mound after winning 10 games in 2018. Bishop Moore will look to Holbrook, Scavone and more to bolster the rotation in hopes of a 5a state title in 2019.
