Braeden HurstBraeden Hurst put up solid numbers in all facets of the game as a freshman in 2013. The 5-foot-6, 140-pound prospect earned Honorable Mention Class A All-State recognition for his all-around performance. Hurst filled up the box score on a nightly basis hitting .308 with 13 RBI and 19 runs scored. He was also effective on the base paths swiping 11 bases in 12 attempts. Hurst had seven multiple hit games and hit safely in 14 of his final 19 games in his first season as a varsity player.

The two-way prospect also went 3-4 on the mound while leading the South Harrison HS pitching staff with 37 innings pitched. Hurst logged two complete games, both wins, and had solid strikeouts-to-walks numbers (22 K, 8 BB).

Hurst was one of 11 freshman and sophomores that dotted the Hawks varsity roster in 2013. With just three players lost to graduation, Hurst and South Harrison appear headed towards an improvement on their 10-19 season of a year ago.
