Last year, Loyalsock found the holes and found a way to win the AA championship. Much is the same again this year, with a talented team returning the only difference is the Lancers have a bullseye on their back.
“Just keeping guys focused and not letting anyone get complacent. We know we have here at Loyalsock. The talent that we have and what we return from last year’s state championship team,” said head coach Jeremy Eck.
The ‘Sock in the Lancer line-up starts with Jimmy Webb, who is verbally committed to Wake Forest. It then rolls into the three hole where North Carolina recruit and ‘Sock shortstop Kyle Datres bats. Finally, hard throwing right hander Luke Glavine gets a turn in the 8 hole. Duke is his next stop, and bunched in there with guys like Phil Krizan, Tommy Baggett, Ben Sosa, Bailey Young, and Evan Moore… Enough to handle for any opposing pitcher.
