Scribner: I am looking for a school with strong academics that is also able to offer a great baseball experience.  

PBR: Raymore-Peculiar drew a tough district bracket in 2014.  Recap your high school season, individually as a team.  

Scribner: Our season started off rough, but we were able to pull it together and win 9 of our last 11 games. Our district was extremely difficult and it seemed like we always got everybody’s best when we played them. We had a tough loss to Lee’s Summit West in the District Championship, but overall it was a great season. The best part of the season was spreading Rockhurst in Districts after they had beaten us twice during the season.

PBR: What are you goals for your senior season at Raymore Peculiar?
