Donofro’s selection as top pitcher a ‘no-brainer’

Published: Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 05:51 PM.

“It feels pretty great,” said Donofro, who had just assumed the award would be handed to Baker.

For Crestview coach Tim Gillis it was a one-man race.

“I think he’s a no-brainer,” Gillis said of the selection. “I say that with a bias because he’s my guy, but he also had the best season of anyone. In all the big games he pitched for us.”

Donofro was joined on the All-Area first team by Bulldog teammates Dakota Dean, Seth Thomason, Tyler Henderson, Austin Armstrong and Tate Sweatt. Davis Champion and Justin Rebholz were named to the second team. Gillis was named the Coach of the Year.

Several local players also made the Small School All-Area team.

BakerSchool's Alan Weidenhammer and Adam Crowson were named to the first team, as was Laurel Hill School's Boomer Simmons. Ben Crowson and Garrett Sanders represented Baker on the second team. Logan Nixon, Jake Rainey, Austin Davis and Kyle Davis received honorable mention.

Laurel Hill's Tyler Grezlik was second team and Max Smith was honorable mention.
