“... Feels good to get another District Championship. We know every day that we have to come out and play ball, we don’t Jarrett Fairchild has been "feasting" on pitching this year as he shows rounding third last night...Lazer photos by Bo BrumfieldJarrett Fairchild has been "feasting" on pitching this year as he shows rounding third last night...Lazer photos by Bo Brumfieldunderestimate anyone. It felt real good my first swing, I come out every at bat and take it personal that any team can be beat in the game of baseball. You have to play your hardest every time out. CJ came out to play football my senior year and got hurt so I wanted to play this year for not only him, but for Dakota, Peyton and Brad along with my Dad and the rest of my family. It’s been a fun ride. CJ was awesome on the mound tonight he did what he needed to and came out on fire it was great to see.”

“... Big situation for Jarrett to come through in the first inning, he has been swinging a hot bat the last couple weeks and has come through with a big hit when we have needed him.”

“... I love playing with not only Jarrett but Peyton, Dakota, and Brad I have always played with those guys growing up on travel ball teams and it’s been a blast so far. It’s really been a blessing playing with those guys all these years. Postseason baseball is different. I got such an adrenaline rush tonight and it makes me throw so much better. I was amped up tonight for sure. I love competing for championships and I’m glad Coach Feltner and Coach Blevins have faith in me.”
