Team Louisiana's 2019 PBR Future Games experience was a great one, as the 2019 group finished the weekend 2-1 with wins over Texas and Arkansas/Kansas. Players up and down the roster made noise and impressions on the hundreds of college coaches in attendance at the event. Over the next few days, Louisiana Scouting Director Trey Sofio and Louisiana Assistant Scouting Director Walt Jones will recap Team Louisiana’s weekend with notes and observations from the prospects in attendance, broken down by position group.

Yesterday we broke down the outfield group from Team Louisiana’s 2019 PBR Future Games club, which you can view HERE.

On Monday, our scouting staff broke down the middle infield group, which you can view HERE.

Today, our scouting staff breaks down the three catchers that represented the state of Louisiana in Atlanta at the annual mega-event.

Below are reports on the three from the weekend:

Andrew Glass C / SS / Barbe, LA / 2022

Above average athlete for position with loose, fluid movements, posted a laser-timed 7.26 60-yard dash. Right-handed hitter, starts from tall setup, athletic in the box, starting slightly open. Rhythmic negative momentum with a medium leg kick, gets back to even. Occasional length in swing, slightly uphill path, creates leverage with wiry limbs.
