Season Review: Coffee


Kyle Colletta
Georgia Staff

Our goal at Prep Baseball Report is to promote high school players, and give them the exposure they need to be able to play at the next level. With the 2020 high school season cancelled, we want to continue to be able to promote players, even when baseball is not being played. We have sent surveys out to coaches around the state and got their input on the first weeks of the season. Over the next few weeks, we will highlight the season and standout players, team by team.

Coffee Trojans

Record: 11-2

Season Notes: The Coffee Trojans were off to a great start to their season, including a 3-0 performance at Week 1 of the Georgia Dugout Club, before the season was cut-short. Led by two-way senior, Wes Lott, the Trojans were poised to make some noise down the stretch of the season; however, they return plenty of talent next season, including a set of 2022's that will have a wealth of varsity experience.

2/22/20 - 5-foot-8, 155-pound right-handed hitting middle infielder, lean, athletic build, top of the order bat for Coffee with above average speed. Takes an open setup, hands load back and drop, toe-tap stride to a balanced position. Good feel for the barrel, line approach, looks to put the ball in play and use his speed.

Season Stats: Pitching - 2-1, 16.2 IP, 8 K, 2.10 ERA. Hitting -  .273 BA, 2 2B, 7 RBI, 7 BB

2/22/20 - 6-foot-3, 170-pound right-handed hitting two-way prospect, can play either corner position, lean, lanky frame, only just starting to physically fill out, much more to come. Balanced, relaxed setup at the plate, hands load back smoothly, short stride. Presently a line drive hitter, uses the middle of the field, has the potential given his frame and future to strength to be a gap-to-gap hitter. Defensively, can handle either corner infield spot, made a number of plays at third base, arm works across the infield. On the mound, worked 79-83 with armside run. Curveball 70-72, sweeping action.
