Future Stars Series standouts Jack Walker, Anthony Solometo, Braden Montgomery and Ryan Spikes were all recently named to the Collegiate Baseball 2021 High School All-American First Team. In addition, Drew Christo, Max Soliz, Jr., Luke Moeller, Blake Burke and Gavin Guidry were named to the Second Team.
You’ll be able to see many of these players at future FSS events; Guidry and Moeller will both be participating in the upcoming National Combine in Lake Charles from July 19-22, while Spikes is set to be one of the players to watch at the Pre-Draft High School Combine that’ll take place from July 2-4.
Walker (pictured) earned a trip to International Week after a strong showing at the National Combine in his hometown of Lake Charles, Louisiana. Walker pitched in relief for the National Team at Fenway Park in Game 2, and allowed only one hit to the nine batters he faced.
Solometo first got onto the FSS radar with a strong showing as a member of Zoom Baseball at a national tournament, and saw his draft stock rise with one of the best pitching performances in the history of International Week; he struck out nine batters in three innings of work.
Montgomery had a big summer with the FSS, showing he’s a true two-way talent at first the National Combine, and then International Week; he had three RBI over his two games at the plate at Fenway Park, and then struck out five batters in his start for the National Team in Game 3 in New Hampshire.
Spikes, like Montgomery, showed off his two-way talents at both the National Combine and then at International Week; Spikes struck out two batters in just one inning of work on the mound, and also recorded a hit in each of the first two games at Fenway Park.
Christo was unable to attend International Week due to a prior commitment, but stood out plenty for the Nebraska Prospects at the national tournament and then at the National Combine, where he struck out six batters in his outing.
Soliz is an Arkansas commit, and had a big showing with the Sticks at the national tournament, where he smacked multiple home runs over the course of the week.
Moeller has been a long-time participant with the FSS, both with Team Dinger and at national events like the inaugural Underclass tournament last year, and has excelled both on the mound and behind the plate.
Burke had a nice showing at the National Combine, and was set to attend International Week before ultimately being unable to show late in the going.
Guidry is another Lake Charles native who’s stood out on the national scene with the FSS; he performed well at both the National Combine and Underclass Combin.
