2017 Seahawks playing Summer Baseball Thread
Thus far, below are the Seahawks I've been able to locate on Summer Baseball rosters. Please post in this thread if you know of any others on rosters, and I'll update this post.

I'll also be keeping up with the progress of our players. Performance in Summer play has an impact on pre-season rankings and can also impact players' draft stock.


Cape Cod League

Clark Cota - Cotuit Kettleers


New England Collegiate League

Ryan Jeffers - Upper Valley Nighthawks
P/INF Blake Deatherage - Upper Valley Nighthawks


Coastal Plain League

Mason Berne - Wilmington Sharks
OF Kep Brown - Wilmington Sharks
Luke Gesell - Wilmington Sharks
RHP Breydan Gorham - Wilmington Sharks
SS Austin LaFollette - Holly Springs Salamanders


Carolina-Virginia League

INF Jackson Meadows - Kernersville Bulldogs
OF Noah Liles - North Wake Fungo
OF Noah Bridges - North Wake Fungo

RE: 2017 Seahawk Summer Baseball Thread
Some notes thus far:

* Sophomore righty Breydan Gorham made his first start for the Wilmington Sharks on June 2nd and flashed some nice potential. In 4 innings of work he allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, striking out 7 and walking 2. He was able to locate his fastball well and pitched with confidence. Gorham received a no-decision in a 5-4 loss.

* Outfielder Kep Brown, who was a projected 1st round pick out of High School before injuries derailed his chances for at least a short period of time, made his way from Miami to Spartanburg Methodist, and is now signed with the Seahawks. He is, however, draft eligible this year. So far, he has struggled with the Sharks in the early going this Summer, starting 0-6 with 3 strikeouts.

* SS Austin LaFollette is off to a good start offensively for Holly Springs, batting 2-7 with a pair of RBI. He has, however, committed an error for the Salamanders in his first 3 chances in the field. With Kennard McDowell gone and sophomore Cole Weiss penciled in as the starter at shortstop in 2018, it would be nice if LaFollette can provide depth at the position going forward.

* Incoming freshman outfielder Noah Liles already has 26 plate appearances with the North Wake Fungo, and is hitting a healthy .261. He's also flashing a lot of speed with 4 stolen bases, tied for 6th most in the Carolina-Virginia league in the young season. He's also struck out 8 times, tied for 7th most, but that's to be expected out of a young hitter adjusting to the transition from High School to D-I baseball.

* Liles' teammate, OF Noah Bridges, another incoming freshman for the Seahawks, has also been heavily aggressive on the basepaths. He's reached base twice in 5 plate appearances and already racked up 3 stolen bases, meaning that on one instance he stole both second AND third. Evidently Fungo head coach Robert Dudley is giving his guys the green light to run wild, as yet another teammate, Wake Forest's Caleb Coyle, has 4 stolen bases as well.

Something else I noticed last week:

Former UNCW commit, Walker Imwalle, transferred to BCC last year & now seems to be committed to (Super Regional participant) Davidson.

Imwalle is on the Sharks roster too, listed as a Davidson guy.

I hear that the idea is, if we can work in another SS, then Weiss would move to third where he is most comfortable.

Imagine if Greg Jones opts to come to school. I'm hearing he's even faster than Linkous was. Which would be highly impressive given that Linkous was probably the fastest athlete in UNCW history, in any sport (even faster than Raynor).

As I understand it, there wasn't any playing time available so he took his talents over the bridge. Spose an opportunity became available in Charlotte some time between then & now.
