PBR Kentucky Player of The Year: Trinity OF Daylen Lile

Chris Fuller
Kentucky Director of Scouting

Prep Baseball Report is excited for the return of Player of the Year Awards, presented by Big League Chew. After the 2020 season was cut short, 2021 generated some incredible individual moments and performances throughout Kentucky. The spring high school season wrapped up in mid-June, and we are excited to announce one player who emerged ahead of the competition at all levels in the state. This player has been selected as the PBR Kentucky Player of the Year not only for his outstanding statistical numbers, but also for his overall effect in his high school program.

Daylen Lile, OF, Trinity HS, 2021

The Louisville signee put together a stellar senior campaign in leading Trinity to the school’s first ever baseball State Championship. Lile put up video-game numbers, posting a .550 batting average with 12 doubles, 12 triples, 18 home runs, and 61 RBIs. He drew 41 walks, was 11-for-11 in stolen bases, and struck out just 6 times the entire season in leading the state champions in nearly every offensive statistical category. His performance only solidified his status as one of the premier high school hitters in the country, and it will be interesting to see how early Lile’s name gets called in July’s MLB draft.

Lile has been selected by the staff of Prep Baseball Report of Kentucky. The team of PBR Kentucky scouts who covered the high school baseball season throughout the spring selected Lile amongst a strong group of candidates from across the state.

Congratulations to Daylen Lile, the PBR Kentucky Player of the Year for the 2021 season.
