Super 60 (Feb. 5, 2017)
6-foot-2, 200-pound right-handed hitting third baseman, strong, well-proportioned build, broad shoulders, barrel-chested, defined lower half. One of the more unheralded prospects at the Super 60, Hendershot turned in a rock-solid performance, showing potential of being a big power-hitting third baseman. Offensively, hits from a relaxed, athletic setup, uses a pronounced leg lift back, rhythm in hand load, generates advanced bat speed, rotational approach, tendency to spin off, but when on-time, showed big pull-side juice with lift. Ball jumps off the bat. Registered 99 mph exit velocity with wood. Defensively, moves well laterally for his size, shows reliable hands, athleticism in the arm. Throws have on-line carry, 89 mph across the infield. Also ran a 7.12 laser-timed 60. 
New York Games (June 27-29, 2016)
Hendershot stands a firm, athletic 6-foot-2, 185 pounds with still room for develop more.Ran a 7.16 60. Offensively, Hendershot stands mostly upright, uses a smooth back-load with a big leg-kick for timing. Hands power quickly inside the ball, plane is mostly level through contact, lift through the finish with long extension. He displays above average bat-speed (100 mph exit) and power to both gaps, more pull-side power currently. Defensively- A corner guy at the next-level with an above average arm (up to 90 mph) with soft-hands and some lateral range. Needs to continue to work on his foot-speed which is average now, but shows the athleticism to improve. Pitching- More raw on the mound, but the signs are all there. 84-87 mph fastball from a quick clean arm-action, the ability to throw a hard curveball, at times showing good feel for locating his off-speed. Only two weeks following the New York Game, the junior from Tioga HS verbally committed to division-one Buffalo.
April 2016
Connected in his second at-bat with a hard-hit ball up the middle from his short, strong swing. Hendershot has shown well above average bat-speed and has the potential to go-deep at any time. Already on the year he’s produced a home-run, several doubles and a few triples.
Preseason All-State (February 28, 2016)
Now ranked No. 13 in the 2017 NY player rankings, Hendershot continues to impress with his high-end bat (96 mph Exit velocity) with well above average arm-strength (90 mph) from a mid-3/4 slot. The strength and power increase over the past 12-months Hendershot has shown is a true testament to his work-ethic in the weight room, Now 6-foot-2, 185-pounds. Offensively - setup is relaxed, uses a higher knee-lift for timing on the pitch with a smooth load. Path is short to the ball, barrel gets to the contact zone quick with some uphill tilt. Major bat-speed and power potential. Defensively - currently projects as a corner infielder/OF, big athletic arm (90 mph) uses good actions and a clean glove, but still needs to develop better foot-speed. Overall big-prospect on the rise in NY.
Border Battle (October 18, 2015)
Parker continues to impress, very steady player who fits into the next level projection at 3B, when very few do. Offensively- Hits from a slightly open stance and delays/hangs his leg kick some. Creates separation with hands and gets through the ball aggressively with lower half. Improved extension will help him reach his true power potential. Uses the whole field and had 2 hard hit singles on the day. Defensively- Works effortlessly into the ball, getting hands out in front. At times can take an additional shuffle step delaying his release. Uses a short arm action from a low 3/4 slot. Above average footspeed for 3B, which may open some doors for OF play if need be.
Eastern NY All-Star Game (September 13, 2015)
Stands at 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, with an athletic body build.  Defensively – He is a solid player who continues to grow every time you see him.  He has a smooth approach through the ball, with smooth, soft, quick hands, throws with a clean loose action, arm is very strong across the diamond, plays through the ball nicely, with lots of range, and has accuracy on the target.  Offensively - At the plate his setup is relaxed and very balanced, high leg kick stride, with a smooth load.  His hands are very compact and strong, swinging on a level plane with long/full extension through the ball, with an athletic balance throughout the whole swing. Well above average bat-speed, he has the potential to put up big numbers.
