QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
I am excited to see these seniors lead the younger guys. Not having much varsity experience prior to last season with COVID, they have really worked hard and have been excellent leaders.

 

PLAYERS TO WATCH:

Cameron Austin - P/OF/SS   c/o 2025, can play anywhere on the field and hits using the whole field.

Weston Sandifer - C   c/o 2022, excellent leader and a wall behind the plate.

Jerry Sanders - IF  c/o 2022, solid corner infielder with good arm across the diamond, has some pop in the bat as well.

Clay Pender - OF   c/o 2023, covers a lot of ground in the outfield, is going to cause problems on the base paths.

Nathan Moody - P/IF   c/o 2022, can fill up the zone and eat up innings, can play anywhere on the infield.
