Bryan County had seven players named to the Region 3A Public all-region baseball team with Konnor Leggett leading the way as the region Offensive Player of the Year for the second straight year.

The junior lefthander was 9-2 on the mound and hit .397 with 23 RBI to help lead Bryan County (18-7) to its first Sweet 16 appearance in the state baseball playoffs since 1987.

Joining Leggett on the first team are sophomore outfielder/pitcher Tanner Ennis, senior first baseman Aaron Bailey and junior catcher Aiden Martin. Second team selections were senior third baseman/pitcher Jacob Hughes, junior shortstop Zach Sitton and sophomore second baseman Sean Kelly Hill.

Ennis, a sophomore who was also a starter in football and basketball, missed the first five games due to the basketball team making the state playoffs. He .339 as the team’s leadoff hitter and was virtually untouchable on the mound where he had a 1-1 record in 14 relief appearances. He struck out 52 in only 25 innings while compiling a 0.72 ERA with a 1.0400 WHIP. Ennis also stole 27 bases in 20 games.

Bailey led the Redskins with 36 RBI while hitting .282. Martin hit a solid. 286 but it was handling pitchers and his defensive skills that stood out. Hughes was 5-2 while batting .275. Hill, a starting defensive back in football and sixth man on the basketball team, fielded flawlessly while hitting .281.
