Let us get it started! Here are the finalists for Public School Baseball Player of the Year!
PLAYER OF THE YEAR FINALIST: Cameron Cauley, Barbers Hill
Cauley helped lead the Eagles to their first state championship. The Texas Tech signee was a stalwart in the middle infield for Barbers Hill. The 5-11, 171-pound Cauley hit .445 this season.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR FINALIST: Ryan Montgomery, Strake Jesuit
The 6-1 Montgomery was essential in leading the Crusaders to the Class 6A state tournament for the first time in program history. Montgomery hit .270 and went 1-1 as a reliever for Strake Jesuit. During the postseason, he produced big hit after big hit as the Crusaders made their storied run.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR FINALIST: Izaac Pacheco, Friendswood
The Texas A&M signee hit .543 with 34 RBIs and five home runs in helping Friendswood go 31-3 and make a run to the Class 5A regional finals. The 6-4, 210-pound Pacheco also stole 19 bases and had an on-base percentage of .670. He is unlikely to ever wear an Aggies uniform, however, as Pacheco is expected to hear his name called early on during next month's Major League Baseball draft.
