Carl Albert’s Gavin LaValley brought in another honor after his impressive senior season Thursday when he was named to USA Today’s American Family Insurance All-USA Baseball Team.

LaValley, who is The Oklahoman’s All-State and Big All-City Player of the Year, is listed as the first-team first baseman after hitting .539 with 19 home runs and 75 RBIs.

He was selected in the fourth round of the MLB draft by the Cincinnati Reds earlier this month. He signed two days later and is currently in Arizona in the Low Rookie League.

LaValley helped lead Carl Albert to its third straight Class 5A championship this season.

Left-hander Brady Aiken of Cathedral High School in San Diego was named the player of the year. He was selected No. 1 overall in the draft by the Houston Astros after compiling a 7-0 record with a 1.06 ERA.
