He also single-handedly carried the Knights to their first state finish as a junior.A two-time Prep Baseball Report first-team All-State selection, Landwehr was perhaps even more dominant than he was as a junior, but didn’t have the same results. In 70.2 innings, the right-hander struck out 100 and walked 11. He held a 0.59 ERA and limited opponents to 40 hits. His record, however, didn’t reflect his dominance. He finished with a 7-3 mark; two of those losses were of the 1-0 variety, both times the runs were unearned.  Landwehr is also a top-level defensive third baseman who batted .417 with nine doubles and 21 RBI. As a junior, the Illinois State recruit broke the school’s single-season record for wins when he went 14-2 while leading the Knights to a third-place finish. He struck out 114 and walked only 11 in 85.1 innings.
