Penn Charter's Joe Lancellotti Named PBR Pennsylvania Player of the Year

Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting

The 2017 high school season yielded many stellar individual performances across all corners of Pennsylvania. But one player stood above the rest: Joe Lancellotti.

Lancellotti, a senior right-handed pitcher/outfielder from William Penn Charter School, delivered a statistically dominant season while helping lead his team to a 25-2 record and the Inter-Academic League championship.

The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Lancellotti went 7-1 on the mound with a 0.29 ERA while registering 86 strikeouts in 46.2 innings of work.  Offensively he was nearly as impressive hitting .487 with 10 home runs.  Lancellotti drove in 40 runs and scored 25 times. Lancellotti is a University of North Carolina recruit.

Lancellotti’s all-around performance has earned him the 2017 Prep Baseball Report Pennsylvania Player of the Year honors.

Lancellotti edged out a highly competitive field of candidates, selected by Pennsylvania Scouting Director Greg Williams and his team of area scouts who covered the season throughout the spring.
