Independent Schools Player of the Year: SS Joe Poduslenko



By Jacob Gill
Philadelphia Region Director of Scouting

PoduslenkoPBR's 2013 Independent Schools Player of the Year is Malvern Prep's Joe Poduslenko, who spearheaded the Friars' run to their third straight Inter-Ac regular-season title. The Seton Hall-bound infielder hit .374 with 51 runs scored, 17 extra-base hits, 37 runs batted in, and 23 stolen bases in 34 games.

What makes Poduslenko's season even more impressive is that he spent most of the spring recovering from a pre-season illness that sapped him of thirty pounds and significant strength.

During Poduslenko's four-year varsity career, Malvern racked up a 94-15 record against in-state competition, including a 35-5 mark in the Inter-Ac and the 2012 PAISAA championship.
