The Redskins have had an impressive run this season. They are currently in the number 1 seed in AAA baseball with a notable 29-7 record. With only four seniors on the roster they have a predominately young team. Coach Sutphin stated, “they are resilient and fun to be around, they are a tight knit group and work well with each other”. This will be important as they head into the state tournament facing number four ranked Morgantown.

Going into this game, Hurricane is in the same spot they were just four years ago on their last championship run. Attaining the same record as in 2013, the Redskins looks forward to bringing home the crown. “This is a great opportunity and they are trying to improve and get better this week, we’re going to put our best foot forward” said Sutphin. With jerseys washed and cleats shined, the Redskins are ready to go into the state tournament and play as if it were their last game.

Sadly, for seniors Garrett Gress, Evan Dearing, Ryan Loughry and Aaron Perry, this could be one of the last games they play with their team. Many memories have been made and they will be cherished as the Redskins push forward into the states.
Congratulations to the Hurricane Redskin baseball team and our other local standout teams.  Please look for other local high school athletes to be named in next year’s Male Gamer of the Week sponsored by Teays Physical Therapy Center, Inc. & The Putnam Herald.
