PLAYER OF THE YEAR

JONATHAN DENNEY, YUKON

Position: Catcher

Class: Senior

The story: Denney was excellent at the plate, hitting .459 with 11 home runs and 46 RBIs. He also drew plenty of walks, as many teams chose to pitch around the feared slugger. Denney was impressive behind the plate as well, though this season not many teams tried to run on him or even take big leads after Denney regularly picked runners off as a junior.

GAVIN LAVALLEY, CARL ALBERT

Position: First Baseman

Class: Junior

The story: LaValley split time between the corner infield spots this season, but wherever he was, he hit. LaValley hit .477 with 20 home runs and 76 RBIs. He was also solid on the mound, going 6-0 with a 2.62 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings.

TRE EDWARDS, SOUTHMOORE

Position: Second Baseman

Class: Senior

The story: The Arkansas signee hit .370 with 10 stolen bases and 14 doubles. He was also excellent in the field, primarily playing shortstop but manning both middle infield spots at times.

JOEL DAVIS, MIDWEST CITY

Position: Shortstop

Class: Senior

The story: After undergoing Tommy John surgery in the fall, Davis came back to hit .451 with five home runs and 36 RBIs this season. He also stole 16 bases.

BRYAN DUTTON, GUTHRIE

Position: Third Baseman

Class: Senior

The story: The Bluejays' three-sport star turned in another great season, hitting .447 with four home runs and 40 RBIs and 39 runs scored. He had a .552 on-base percentage and a .952 fielding percentage.
