With five All-State players returning, including Georgia Player of the Year Buddy Floyd, Pope looks poised to be in contention to three-peat.
Floyd hit .391 last year with 32 RBI, 16 stolen bases and 50 runs scored, according to MDJ Online. He’s the No. 152 shortstop in the country. Floyd is one of four top-500 players on the team, along with Max Pralgo (No. 249 shortstop), Caden Smith (No. 75 catcher), Reid Robertson (No. 207 OF in 2020).
With a 9-1 start, they Greyhounds are well on their way. At any rate, it’s a much better start than last season, when they lost three of their first six games.
