Location: Lilburn, Ga.

2015 record: 34-2

Final Super 25 rank: 1

The reigning state 6A and Super 25 champion Panthers enter the season on a 26-game winning streak after a school-record 34 wins last season. Parkview has won three state titles in the last five years for coach Chan Brown, named the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Baseball Coach of the Year.

Parkview has a solid pitching staff. Begin with RHP-1B Will Ethridge (13-1, 1.47 ERA), an Ole Miss signee, and two junior lefties in Cody Collett (4-0, 1.38 ERA) and Caleb Mitchell.

Seniors 1B-RHP Corey Whitlock (.471 BA) and OF-RHP Garrett Fowler (0.75 ERA) provide depth. The staff will have a good target to throw to in Georgia commit Austin Biggar (.370, 48 RBI, 11 HRs).

Another key returnee is 1B-C Johnathan Whitmer (.292, 20 RBI).
