Louisiana All-State Games Quick Hits - Catchers

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

Our team continues to provide post event coverage of the Louisiana All-State Games this week, as we take a look at the top catchers that were in attendance.  This group of players includes several uncommitted prospects, as well as a 2021 prospect, that has recently started to work at the position for the first time in five years.  


2023 Zach Schoenborn (Parkway HS)

Schoenborn has received a lot of attention coming out of the Louisiana All-State Games and for good reason.  Physical, 6'1" 195 lbs. frame; the 2023 uncommitted prospect showed average footwork and developing arm strength that produced a 75 mph positional velocity and a pop time of 1.92-2.05.  As the defense continues to develop; it will only make him more attractive, as his offense really shined at the event.  The LHH catcher posted a 94 mph exit velocity, showing the ability to square up baseballs gap to gap, with the potential for more power to come.  

2023 Cameran Christ (Live Oak HS)

The Louisiana All-State Games was the first chance that our staff got to zone in on the Mississippi State Bulldog commit.  6'0" 185 lbs. frame with room to add strength; Christ posted a 77 mph positional velocity that looks like it will increase as he continues to get stronger.  Average footwork and release that resulted in a 1.95-2.00 pop time.  Another LHH; Christ had a really professional round of BP, working the ball into the opposite field gap and then finishing his round off by squaring up a couple of balls to the pull side that produced a 92 mph exit velocity.  

2021 Kyle Debarge (Barbe HS)

"Swiss Army Knife" would be the best term to describe the 2021 University of Louisiana signee.  Debarge showed well in all portions of the All-State Games.  Behind the plate, Debarge did a really good job of handling the pitchers during the game portion for someone who hasn't caught in five years.  He received pitches well and even threw out a runner on a block and recover situation.  Posted an event best 83 mph positional velocity for catchers and an event best 1.76-1.85 pop time.  

2022 Carson Carey (Airline HS)

Physical, imposing, 6'2" 185 lbs. frame; Carey was one of the standout catcher's from the All-State Games.  Created "game-like" times for our staff by staying down in the catching position longer than most.  78 mph positional velocity and 1.94-2.08 pop time.  Strong hands and an above average receiver.  Carey also had a good showing offensively, by posting a 97 mph exit velocity during the BP portion of the event.

2022 Caleb Webb (Walker HS)

Webb was one of the catching prospects we were excited to see at the All-State Games, following a great summer.  Built from the ground up, with a strong lower half; Webb stays in his legs and behind the baseball to produce accurate throws to each base.  Posted a 75 mph positional velocity with a 1.90-2.02 pop time.  Received well during the game portion and blocked multiple pitches in the dirt, showing his tough, hard-nosed style of play.
