CJ Clayton C / RHP / Hershey , PA / 2025

Physical, leveraged 6-foot-3, 205lb frame with above-average power potential from the right side. Was among the leaders at the Preseason All-State East with a 97 mph exit velocity.


Mason Coyne C / 1B / North Penn, PA / 2025

The durable backstop threw out 4 would-be base-stealers at #PAStateGames with pinpoint accuracy and 71 mph arm-strength. Starting to come into his own offensively, utilizing an XBH approach to pull.


Tyler Peck C / 3B / Palmyra Area , PA / 2025

Heavy hands at 5-11, 209lbs, profiling as a future middle of the order bat. Connects to the ground and shows advanced body control with a 92 mph exit and occasional sub-2.00 pop times.


Joshua Toole C / 3B / Hempfield, PA / 2025

A high riser in the rankings, just outside the top 10, Toole plays with confidence on both sides. Game comes easy to him with a short barrel-path and shutdown catch-and-throw skill set.



Jake Lenahan 1B / RHP / Abington Heights, PA / 2024

Stands out in uniform with a thick, imposing build at 6-foot, 190lbs. The right-handed hitter controls the leg-hang, initiating a quick trigger that stays in the hitting zone for length. Gap-to-gap juice up to T90 mph exit and will come out of relief for Team East at 81-84 mph (1717).


Keaton Phillips 3B / OF / Delaware Valley , PA / 2024

There’s plenty of intent in a rotational move, but the results don’t lie. The 5-foot-11, 210lb corner infielder notched mid-70’s bat-speed and a 96 mph exit at multiple events. Can handle the outfield, too with enough athleticism to stick (79 mph arm).



Ty Custer SS / OF / Cocalico, PA / 2025

Mechanically sound with strength coming in waves at 5-foot-8, 160lbs, Custer pushed under 7.00 this summer (6.92 60-YD) and grabbed an 84 mph arm-strength positionally. This after tallying three hits at #PAStateGames.


Noah Heath SS / RHP / Lower Dauphin, PA / 2025

Another breakout in Dubois with a muscular 5-foot-10, 170lb build and projection left, Heath produced a 100% sweet-spot rate during BP. The primary shortstop turned in a fluid round and then stepped on the rubber for T81 mph out of a compact delivery.


Landen Rozich SS / 2B / Oxford Area, PA / 2025

An uptick in velocity this summer makes an elastic ¾ slot intriguing at 80-82 mph. Smooth thrower with loose arm-action and feel to spin the ball, also creates some burst in the box for T90 mph exit. 6-foot-1, 150lbs.


Jake Yang SS / 3B / Central Bucks South, PA / 2025

The electric middle infielder gets the most out of his lean 5-foot-11, 155lb frame, generating torque across the dirt for an 88 mph infield arm. Offense is trending upwards with top-of-the-order ability, spraying line-drives around the field.



Tyler Burger OF / LHP / Solanco, PA / 2023

Among the staff favorites as a two-way prospect in a wiry 6-foot, 170lb frame. Ran a 6.85 to start off #PAStateGames and delivered a twitchy 93 mph exit velo from a balanced stance (R/L). The southpaw commanded 79-81 to arm-side with a taller mid-60’s breaker.


Gavin Trainer OF / RHP / Boyertown, PA / 2026

One of the younger attendees this weekend, Trainer will surely impress with near 7.00 footspeed and highly accurate hands. The Junior Future Gamer made a name for himself with two triples at Lakepoint in July. 5-foot-8, 145lbs; Uncommitted



Justin Fryer LHP / OF / Norristown , PA / 2025

Equipped with a lively FB up to 83 mph out of a lower-release height, the lefty flashes a true three-pitch mix. The 5-foot-11, 160-pounder uses the front shoulder to create depth on a mid-60’s CB (2100) while fading the CH at 70-72 mph.


Jack Pye RHP / OF / La Salle College, PA / 2025

Among the 2025 breakout arms, Pye fits the mold at 6-foot-3, 175lbs. There’s starter’s upside through a raw delivery, showing the letters with early hip-coil and downhill plane at 80-81 mph. Leverages a 69-70 mph CH (955) at arm-speed for weak contact and backdoors the CB.
