Now that the 2024 high school season has ended, we are excited to announce one player, who emerged ahead of the competition, at all levels across the state of Nevada.ย  This player has been selected not only for their outstanding statistical numbers, but also for their overall effect on their high school program.

We are excited to announce that '25 SSย Tate Southisene of Basic Academy has earned our 2024 Player of the Year award! Below, we dive into Southisene's explosive run at the plate throughout the spring for the Wolves. He closed out the season on a tear as was carrying a 22-game hit-streak, dating back to mid-March, that included multi-hit games in 11 of his final 12 matchups.ย Stay tuned into our social channels this week as we will also be announcing Arizona's All-State Teams from the 2024 High School season.

2025 SS Tate Southisene (USC commit), a Future Games and ProCase alum, was on a tear at the dish from start to finish this year as he picked up a hit in every game but two on the season. One of the top incoming senior prospects in the State, Southisene provided a big punch to the Basic Academy lineup as he batted .576 and flashed the ability to drive the ball for extra-bases as he had seven homeruns, four triples and ten doubles.

He continued to get stronger as the season went along as he picked up a hit in every game from March 15th onward and racked up multiple hits in 11 of his final 12 games. In a Basic Academy lineup that boasts several big-time offensive weapons, Southisene led the way in nearly every major offensive category including average, on-base percentage and homeruns.ย 

In his first three years in the Wolves lineup, Southisene has already made a major impact on the program as he's batting .495 on his career with 36 extra-base hits and those numbers will continue to climb as he enters his senior season. The USC commit will be a fun watch over the summer as he continues to get looks for the 2025 MLB Draft and will get his summer started in early June at our Prep Baseball - Procase West in Malibu, California.
