If you're talking about their Sikeston high school playing days, Blake DeWitt and Jacob Priday had very similar stats. In fact, I think they battled back and forth, as far as their average goes throughout all four years they played high school baseball together. Blake made it all the way. But, Jake had a great career at Mizzou and was drafted in the most recent draft by the Houston Astros.

Here are a few other players that were great:
Bobby Landers - Great pitcher - took 2nd in state as a senior in '01
Adam Garrett - Great shortstop - also took 2nd in state in '01 as a junior...played a year at Mizzou.
Kent Chappell - Great catcher - took 2nd at state as well and had a good batting average and a cannon for an arm.

I don't know much about earlier players in Sikeston's baseball program. But, I know there are many of the old school guys who had great careers at Sikeston.

Jason Childers didn't even start in high school. Chappell started over Childers every year.
