BRAXTON LANE
Last year, Lane was named to the Aflac All-American
team, proving he is one of the nation's elite
talents. He is a career .400-plus hitter and has
swiped more than 50 bases.

DONAVAN TATE
The North Carolina recruit and Aflac All-American
slugged nine homers and drove in 43 runs to lead the
Canes to the Class AAA state crown in 2008. He is
rated the nation's No. 5 player in the ESPNU rankings.

CAMERON BEDROSIAN
With a fastball that pops in the mid-90s, it's no surprise
Bedrosian's strikeouts nearly doubled last year, going
from 65 as a sophomore to 108. He posted a 2.58 ERA
to go with seven wins in 76 innings pitched.

ZACH WHEELER
On the hill, there aren't many better than the 6-foot-
4 fireballer. The No. 22 player in the ESPNU rankings,
he posted a 1.31 ERA and fanned 127 batters to help
East Paulding win 23 games in '08.

Coach's Take

AN AREA COACH ON MILES HEAD:
"You hate seeing him step in the on-deck circle,
much less the batter's box. He is signed to
Georgia, but probably won't make it to Georgia.
He'll get drafted in the first couple rounds. Great
pure hitter. He hits with authority."
