TOP RETURNERS (Commit)
Jack Alrike, RHP, 2015 (VCU)
Chris Jeletic, RHP/INF, 2015

Andy Rozylowicz, LHP, 2015 (UMBC)
Brad Thaxton, RHP, 2015

Outlook:
DeMatha Catholic is coming off of a solid 2014, posting a strong record before ending its season early in the WCAC playoffs. The 2015 Stags are returning a significant portion of their pitching staff this year, but will have to fill a lot holes in the lineup with new faces having to replace the offense of All-American Justin Morris (Maryland) and the defense provided by infielders Ben Prada (UMass-Lowell) and Antonio Rosanova (McDaniel). The staff will be led by a pair of Division I bound arms in Jack Alkire (RHP, 2015) and Andy Rozylowicz (LHP, 2015) and will have good depth in Brad Thaxton (RHP, 2015) and Chris Jeletic (RHP/IF, 2015). The offense will be led by Andre Keith (OF, 2015). The Stags will be strong on the mound this year, and how they fare in the strong WCAC will hinge on whether how much offense they can generate.
