Colorado Insider: Preseason All-State Revelations

By John Cackowski
State Director

The collective talent at the 2nd Annual Preseason All-State was impressive, especially given it was late February. There hasn't been many times in Colorado history when such a big collection of talent was all together on one field. 

In this article I look at my personal revelations from a few individual performances on Sunday. By no means is this my list of the best players at the event, though many of the below names would certainly be in there. No, this list consists of players who surprised, improved, emerged to the fore, flew under the radar, etc.

Jack Winkler, SS, Chatfield
6-foot-1, 170 pounds. Bats and throws right. This was the first time we got a real good look of Winkler up close and he did not disappoint. He had one of the best rounds of batting practice of the day spraying hard line drives all over the field. He registered a 93 mph exit velocity off a tee. A well rounded athlete, Winkler ran a 7.06 which in time if he works on it can get that number to be a sub 7. Winkler flashed a strong enough arm across the diamond at 81 mph. With his athleticism, frame and tools, Winkler has put himself on the map as a top prospect in our state.
