Div. 2- Gulf District Preview (Reg. 23)

If you have followed anything that we have put out over the last 2-3 years you know how we (well atleast Noah) feels about this district. When you have on a yearly basis 6-7 teams that are within the top 15 that are all vying for one spot to go to Enid, as well as when they play Div 1 teams from outside their region they usually give them more then what they thought they were going to get from just some teams from Mississippi how could you not like this district. 

Other than LSU-Eunice, all the teams in this region are from Mississippi which poses one interesting thing. Junior College’s from Mississippi can only have four of out of state players on their roster, Including those that are on scholarship. Which also adds to the fact that Mississippi might be the most under appreciated High School Baseball State in the country. 

This region has had the Most National Championships and Championship Games over the last decade. Including the Team of the Decade in LSU-Eunice. Going into 2018, Pearl River was Ranking the #1 team as well as getting the #1 seed in Enid, unfortunately finishing tied for 3rd with Pasco-Hernando. LSU-Eunice, as Mentioned above, was the Team of the Decade. They took trips in 2018 (National Champs), 2015 (National Champs), 2013 (National Runner-Up), 2012 (National Champs), as well as a trip in 2010 (National Champs). Hinds took trips in 2017, and 2014 (National Runner-Up); Jones was the only other team to make a trip to Enid from this region with trips in 2016 (National Champs), and 2011 (National Runner-Up). So it is clear to see that this region has had success when it comes to the National State. Add with the fact that over 90% of this region is from the state of Mississippi again that state is arguably one of the best High School states for Baseball. 

When it comes to the talent that is in this region this year we are not quite sure where to begin. From top to bottom this is a talent rich standpoint, then you add what this year has brought with more talent ending up at schools that you did not think it would end up at this region is one of the deepest at any level:

Copiah-Lincoln’s- Peyton Parker

East Central’s- Jesse Boydstun, and Amani Larry

Hind’s-Pablo Lanzarote, Connor Carter, Bryce Brock, and Matt Corder

Holmes’- Cole Drake

Itawamba’s- Ben Fryer, Tyler Murphy, and Lane Domino

Jones County’s- Dalton Rogers, Deejay Booth, Hunter Leblanc, and Hunter French

LSU-Eunice’s- Jacob Hammond, Hunter Tabb, Jack Merrifield, and Jerry Couch

Meridian’s- JT Ethridge and Choyce Diffey

Mississippi Gulf Coast’s- Hayden Robb and Antonie Harris

Northeast Mississippi- Jacob Compton, Cole Phillips, and Bryan Seaman

Pearl River’s- Landon Harper, Graham Crawford, Austen Izzio, Tate Parker, and Leif Moore

University Junior College Recruiting Class Ranking

As many know November 13th was the start of the early signing day period this fall. And boy was it a day. For junior college athletes it generally is not as much of a surprise where they are going to sign when they have their options. They do not usually have the hats sitting in front of them like many people think when it comes to a person signing day.

From what we here at the JBB have collected it was over 200 different individuals commit/sign so far during this period. So we decided to break out or ranking caps for the first time to kick off the official 2020/2021 Calendar. Yes, we did have a Recruiting Class Ranking a few weeks back but this is for the guys that will not make it to campus till the fall of 2021.

As usual there are many of your normal universities that have already started to pick the Junior College ranks to fill their rosters for the next coming years. Below we rank the top 25 Classes as well as some Honorable Mentions.

Week 6 Players and Teams of the Week

Teams of The Week

Here is a look at the teams that made the biggest moves or had huge weeks as a team for each division

Div 1: Crowder (7-0)

Yes, Crowder is in this week’s Top 10. But when you play 7 games in a week and outscore your opponents 98-12 it’s worth diving into just how crazy each game was for them. 

They started the week on Thursday, with a 31-0 win over Labette.  They played 7 innings scoring in every one of those 7. The biggest inning came in the 5th when they scored 12. On the mound Chandler Ashby threw a complete game shutout striking out 4 and only allowing 4 hits. At the plate is where things obviously get a bit crazy. Frankie Circello and Victor Plaz led the way for them (even though there really is not anyone that did not actually do good that game). Circello was 3-3 on the day with 3 homers, 6 RBI’s, and scored 4 runs himself. Plaz was 3-4 on the day with 2 homers, 9 RBI’s, and 2 Runs. 

The next day, Friday, they had a double header against Lake Land. They won the first game 13-0, behind Jared Viertel who threw a complete game shutout, striking out 7 with 3 walks in 5 innings, and Cameron Tissue (South Alabama) who was 3-3 in the game with a double, homer, 6 RBI’s and scored twice. The second game of the day was the closest game they had all week. It was a 2-1 win which they walked off in the bottom of the 7th. 

They finished the week with a weekend series against Indian Hills in which they took the games 16-6, 13-2, 11-1, and 12-2. In the second game (13-3), Crowder hit 6 homers as a team. 2 by Logan Chambers, 2 by Landrey Wilkerson, 1 by Frankie Circello, and 1 by Rod Criss.
