Stephen Furia OF / RHP / Downingtown West, PA / 2025

Was top of the leaderboard in almost every category. Has 2-way potential; Ready for a breakout season.

Austen Frye RHP / C / Downingtown West, PA / 2025

His strong lower half helps him generate power with the bat and on the mound. A dynamic player who will look to climb the rankings this season.

Dominic Scattolino OF / RHP / Unionville, PA / 2026

Looked like the complete package.  The sophmore has 2-way potential.  Hit the ball hard all round with a direct swing path and exit velo up to 93mph.  Ran well; attacking the ball in the field and diplayed a good OF Velo of 86mph.  Was competitive on the mound, showcasing a solid 3-pitch mix. Solid lower half drive with FB up to 86mph.

Jeremy Haigh 1B / LHP / Fox Chapel, PA / 2025

Had everyone's attention during batting practice recording an impresive 105mph exit velocity. Also a valuable LHP with 79mph FB and good 3-pitch mix.

Blake Scott 1B / RHP / Butler, PA / 2026

A strong durable frame. Intimidating presence at the bat and on the mound. Can impact the game in many ways

Ryan Tatar RHP / Central Catholic, PA / 2025

One of the best pitchers we have seen so far.  Focused on the mound this weekend and it is paying off. Up to 87mph with his FB. Nothing he throws is straight, plenty of movement to keep hitters off balance.  Still plenty of upside and growth potential.

Landon Eifler RHP / 3B / North Catholic, PA / 2027

Already on the radar of colleges and scouts; he did not disappoint. Continues to improve with plenty of upside left. Looked dominant on the mound with heavy FB up to 85mph. 

Brad Bucci SS / RHP / Peters Township, PA / 2028

A young talented pitcher the caught everyone's attention. Had a short take back and fast arm. Electric mix of pitches that get on the hitter quick and keep you guessing.

Charlie Manzi SS / 3B / Indiana Area, PA / 2026

Just built different. Strong lower half generating power and an exit velocity up to 100mph for the sophomore. Also, displayed a strong arm with a throwing velo of 84mph across the infield.

Grady Kloosterman OF / RHP / Canon-McMillan, PA / 2027

One of the most projectable pitchers we have seen. Good mound presence with a loose arm whip.  Plenty of room for growth.  Pounds the zone with a 4-pitch mix. Starting pitcher potential.

J.R. Rieg LHP / 1B / Trinity, PA / 2025

Valuable LHP for anyone's staff.  Loose arm action that he controls well. FB up to 82mph with growth potential. Has run and movement on all his pitches; will get outs.

Eric Miehl C / 3B / Bethel Park, PA / 2027

Stays behind the ball well with a compact swing.  Got a lot of hard contact with good extension and finish. The young catcher blocks and receives above average. Has a clean/quick transfer and a strong arm. POP time of 2.1 and still developing.
