Doug Freeman

                    3B Logan Keller

Team: Lake Brantley
Preseason Rank: 21
2018 Record: 18-10
FHSAA Class: 9A
Head Coach: Eric Entrkin  
Playoff Run: Lost in Regional Quarterfinal

TOP PLAYERS
Name, Position, Class (College Commitment)
Logan Keller, 3B, 2019 (Alabama)
Isaac Nunez, SS, 2019 (Florida)
Alec Makarewicz, UTL, 2019 (ECU)
Evan Siegner, 2B, 2019 (West Florida)
Rese Brown, RHP, 2019 (USF)
Ryan Fischer, UTL, 2019 (Indiana)
Luke Heyman, UTL, 2022 (Florida)
Landon Moran, LHP/1B, 2022 (Florida)

X-FACTOR
Youth. A pair of freshman who prior to even playing a game in the spring, have committed to University of Florida. Both Heyman and Moran will look to make an immediate impact on a talented roster.

KEY PLAYERS LOST
Ryan Brubach
Jason Jucker
Gabe Servi

OUTLOOK
With eight Division I recruits, Lake Brantley is yet again a force to be reckoned with in Florida. Returning seven offensive starters, and led by Logan Keller, Isaac Nunez, Alec Makarewicz, Evan Siegner and Ryan Fischer, the Patriots should be an offensive force. Rese Brown is coming off of Tommy John, but looks to be ready for the spring. There is a lot of talent on the mound with the Freshman Moran, but the if the offense performs and the young guys get some quality playing time education, the Patriots should have a chance to make a deep run in the 2019 playoffs.
