Team Ohio 2015 Future Games Spotlight: Peyton Deats, LHP



By Dylan Hefflinger
Ohio Editor in Chief/NW Scout 

On July 30th through August 1st, PBR Ohio will take a select team of players in the Classes of 2017 and 2018 to represent Ohio at the PBR Future Games in Indianapolis at Grand Park.

Players receive exposure unlike any other event for underclassmen. Last year, 100+ colleges from all over the country were in attendance, including coaches from every Division I power conference in the country. Only players who have a legitimate shot at being a Division I recruit and who have an interest in the possibility of making a verbal commitment during their sophomore or junior seasons have been considered.

Thoughts on being selected to play in PBR's Future Games and representing the great state of Ohio: "It’s like a dream come true. I can’t wait to represent the great buckeye state in Indiana."

How has PBR helped as far as recruiting and exposure: "PBR has helped me get exposed to, and recruited by colleges through social media and inviting colleges to their events."
