Arkansas High School Spring Spotlight: Searcy

By: Prep Baseball Arkansas Staff

The Arkansas high school baseball season kicks off on Feb. 26, opening day for regular season action under AAA regulations. Leading up to opening day, we’ll be publishing our team previews ahead of the 2024 spring season, touching on programs spanning all state classifications, counting down through the official Prep Baseball Arkansas Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

Perennially, we’ve submitted a preseason questionnaire to high school head coaches across the entire state. Their responses have been flooding in and we’re using the detailed insight they’ve provided in our team-by-team preseason analysis.

Our 2024 preseason coverage continues today.

No. of Returning Starters:


Top Returning Players:

Dalyn Hamilton 1B,P/2024/6' 195/R/R
Lead team in every hitting statistic last season. Will be huge bat in lineup and compete every time he steps on the mound.

Will Bailey OF,P/2025/6'1 170/R/R
Stepped up big for the team as a sophomore and will continue to hold down a spot in the OF. Plus plus arm and swings a quick bat.

Top Newcomers:

Hunter Figley C,P/2024/6'3 215/R/R
Has had a great offseason and has increased both strength and velocity. We are looking for him to catch several innings as well as be a leader on the mound.

Blake Parker MIF,P/2025/5'11 155/R/R
Really nice hands and footwork in the infield. Will be a much needed arm to the pitching staff with potential conference starter upside.

Angel Arman MIF/2026/5'6 145/R/R
Very athletic kid. Saw limited varsity action last season as a Freshman but will be looked to much more often this season. Very fundamental in the field as well as the plate. HIs high contact and speed could put him at the top of our lineup.

Coach’s Insight:

“Possibly the hardest working and most coachable team we've ever had. They understand how young we are and there is an excitement and drive coming from them to prove to themselves that they can compete. Inexperience is our main concern, especially early in the season. How will this team respond to some of the mental or physical mistakes/failures? We are constantly looking at who will fill the void left from a large graduating class.” – Matthew Davis, head coach
