2011: Very athletic first-year player will see most of his playing time as a late-game, defensive specialist and as a courtesy runner…good speed will make him a valuable contributor…in the outfield, he gets excellent jumps on the ball and possesses a fine arm…uses his speed at the plate, too, bunting with precision or pounding the ball into the ground.

Byrd HS: A three-year starter for the Yellow Jackets, playing right field his first two years and first base in his senior season…the club qualified for the postseason in each of those years, highlighted by a state semi-final appearance in 2009…a year later, the Jackets won the 5A District title and made the quarterfinals of the state tournament…during his three prep years, he hit a combined .348 with a .439 on-base percentage…stole 33 bases, scored 78 runs, and drove in 86 more…as a senior, he was named first-team All-5A District at first base and all-city honorable mention.
