Power 25 HS Preview: #13 Etowah

PBR Georgia Staff
Hudson Graham

The 2023 Georgia high school baseball season is less than a month away. With the season getting pushed up one week the coaches and players have an extra week to prepare for opening day. Will it be sunny and 75? Or below freezing for opening day? The Georgia weather is unpredictable, just like trying to predict who will come out on top of each classification. The talent in the State of Georgia continues to be one of the best in the country. Some regions have a fresh new look, and some region foes will continue to battle for that top spot to earn the best road to the state championship.

We will begin to preview our Power 25 rankings each day until the season begins. Each week we will be releasing our players of the week, updating the Top 10 in each GHSA classification as well as a Power 25. Be sure to follow PBR Georgia on twitter for live action each week, as our staff travels throughout the state to cover baseball in the great state of Georgia.

Team Outlook

The Eagles were state runner-up in 2022, and look to get back to Truist this spring. They lost a couple key line-up pieces, but will be replacing them with some of the top freshman in the country. All of their top contributing pitchers will be returning. Dimitri Angelakos and Caleb Hughes will lead the Eagles on the mound once again this season. Angelakos is up to 89 on the, and can get it done at the plate as well. Southern Miss commit, Caleb Hughes will look to improve on an outstanding 2022 season. He will also be a upper 80’s arm and strong bat for the Eagles. Columbus State commit Danny Hershberger will also be back to help lead on the mound. Look for him to start creeping into the low 90's with his fastball.

The leader in appearances for 2022, Isaac Griffin will be their key reliever again this season. Griffin fills up the zone, and can get the Eagles out of some james late in games. He can also shut the door as the closer at times. Chipola commit Will Curcio was one of the top bats last season. The RBI machine will have freshman Deion Cole and Miami commit Trevor Condon to potentially drive in this spring. Cole is the top ranked 2026 in the state and ranked top 5 nationally. Georgia commit Matthew Sharman could also be a huge piece on the mound, although the new region Etowah is in will be a tough one for a freshman to earn his first high school innings. The pitching staff should be able to take this 2023 team deep into the playoffs, and if the line up clicks the Eagles could get redemption in the state championship game.
