Dyer, Carter, Hurd, Jordan named All-State honorees in D-III
Behind a strong 2018 season in SOC II play that saw five of the eight units in the conference finish with winning records, the SOC II put four players on the OHSBCA All-State lists for 2018 as Wheelersburg’s Cole Dyer obtained First-Team All-State honors behind his 15-homer season while his teammate, ace pitcher Trey Carter, along with West’s Garrett Hurd and Minford’s Darius Jordan, each made the Honorable Mention All-State list.
Dyer, a standout third baseman, flashed exceptional defensive ability from the hot corner, as well, en route to having one of the best high school campaigns in Wheelersburg baseball history. Carter, who starred as the Pirates’ leadoff hitter, separated himself as the team’s ace, while Hurd — a top of the order, plus-.440 hitter who starred in the middle of the infield for the Senators — and Jordan, who has continued to be the leader of an outstanding outfield core and a sparkplug in Minford’s run to the OHSAA Division III State Final Four — all flashed their exceptional abilities.
Carter, Hurd, and Jordan, who are all juniors, lead an exceptional 2019 class that also includes Valley’s Tanner Cunningham and Green’s Tanner Kimbler, Tayte Carver, and Bryce Ponn, among others.
