2023 SPORTS IN KANSAS BASEBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR & COACH OF THE YEAR CAPSULES BY CLASS

Sports in Kansas 6A Player of the Year: Nick English, Olathe South

The senior catcher, who was a Sports in Kansas First-Team All-State selection at catcher as a junior, claims the POY title after slashing .418 with five home runs, 6 doubles, 20 RBI, and 15 runs scored. English posted a .746 slugging percentage and .523 on-base percentage in his final season as a Falcon. Behind the plate, he threw out six of ten runners and picked off seven. English also received Kansas Gatorade Player of the Year honors this season and is heading to Kansas State next to play collegiately. 

Sports in Kansas 6A Pitcher of the Year: Jack Kreisman, Blue Valley Northwest

Kreisman is the 2023 6A Pitcher of the Year after an impressive senior campaign with the Huskies. In 49.2 innings pitched, Kreisman gave up just 13 runs (11 earned) for a 1.55 ERA and struck out 81 to just 24 walks. He went 6-1 on the season for BVNW. As a junior, Kreisman garnered SIK First-Team All-State honors as a utility player. This season, he continued his versatile role by also adding two doubles, two triples, and a home run while drawing 17 walks. The senior now heads to DII powerhouse Central Missouri to play collegiately.

Sports in Kansas All-Classes & 6A Baseball Coach of the Year: Joe Allison, Blue Valley West

Allison repeats as 6A Coach of the Year after leading the Jaguars to a second straight 6A state title in just his 5th season at the helm. This year’s state championship team went 20-5 overall with wins over Olathe North, Lawrence-Free State, and Blue Valley North to claim the 6A title. He was also named the coach of the year in all-classes for his repeat feat.

Sports in Kansas 5A Player of the Year: Blake O’Brien, St. Thomas Aquinas

O’Brien, a two-way player for the Saints, led Aquinas to back-to-back 5A state tournaments. In his senior season, O’Brien hit .382 with a state-best 13 doubles and 17 total extra base hits. He added 23 RBI with a .637 slugging percentage and 1.113 OPS. On the mound, O’Brien pitched 49 innings, posting a 1.135 ERA with a record of 7-1 on the year and 85 strikeouts. O’Brien will stay close to home and play collegiately at the University of Kansas. 

Sports in Kansas All-Classes & 5A Pitcher of the Year: Tyner Horn, Goddard-Eisenhower

Horn led the Tigers to back-to-back 5A state tournaments with his dominance on the mound. He went 6-0 on the season and pitched 38.1 innings with a perfect 0.00 ERA. He struck out 65 on the year for a 46% strikeout percentage. He walked just 9 batters and gave up only 12 hits. Opponents hit just .095 against Horn as he topped out at 96 MPH. Horn will stay home to play for the Shockers of Wichita State – he should be pretty familiar with Eck Stadium that plays host to the 5A state tournament. Horn had one of the greatest seasons in high school baseball history and also earned the all-classes pitcher of the year from Sports in Kansas.

5A Baseball Coach of the Year: Charles Ebright, Bishop Carroll

The longtime Golden Eagles head coach led his team to the 5A state championship, the third in program history, all of which have come under him (2005, 2012, 2023). This year’s state title team claims the crown with a record of 24-1. Carroll defeated Great Bend, Goddard Eisenhower, and finally De Soto in the 5A state championship. Carroll has a bright future with several all-state selections from Sports in Kansas back next year.

Sports in Kansas All-Classes & 4A Player of the Year: Hunter Alvord, McPherson

Alvord repeats as the Sports in Kansas 4A Player of the Year after leading the Bullpups to back-to-back 4A state titles. While he may not be the number one ranked recruit, no player in Kansas has had the last two years of success like that of Alvord, not only as an individual but with the state championships as he also takes home the All-Classes Player of the Year nod as Tyner Horn of Eisenhower takes home the All-Classes Pitcher of the Year nod from Sports in Kansas. Last season’s championship was the first in MHS baseball history. In his senior season, Alvord batted .517 with A 1.570 OPS. Of his 46 hits on the year, 25 were extra base hits including 12 doubles, 7 triples, and 6 HR. Alvord finished the season with 48 RBI and struck out just 7 times all season. He also stole 31 bases for a 96.9% stolen base percentage. Alvord next heads to dominant junior college program Cowley County CC to play collegiately. He was also a finalist for the offensive player of the year in football from SIK this fall.His father, Aaron, was an all-state player for Canton-Galva in 1996, being drafted in the 7th round by the Detroit Tigers in high school. 

Sports in Kansas 4A Pitcher of the Year: Mark Hoffman, Clay Center

Hoffman has been a huge part of Clay Center’s success in multiple sports recently. His 2023 SIK 4A Pitcher of the Year nod comes after pitching 48.2 innings this season and walking just 5 with 64 strikeouts., He posted a 0.43 ERA and helped the Tigers go 21-2 with a 4A state tournament appearance. Hoffman will join 4A POY Alvord at Cowley County CC next season to continue playing collegiately. 

Sports in Kansas 4A Baseball Coach of the Year: Heath Gertsner, McPherson

Gertsner, in his 8th season with the Bullpups, led his team to a second straight 4A state title and just the program’s second ever. The Bullpups went 21-4 and defeated Larned/LaCrosse, Paola, and Chanute on the way to the state crown. Gerstner repeats as 4A COY from SIK and last season he earned all-classes COY honors for McPherson. McPherson was led by several all-state picks from Sports in Kansas including 4A POY and all-classes POY Hunter Alvord.

Sports in Kansas 3A Players of the Year: Seth Stover, Columbus & Brady Hunt, Wichita Collegiate

A tie in the voting here as it’s hard to argue with either’s body of work this season as the top players in 3A this season. Stover, a 6-foot-6 senior for the Titans, was impressive on both the mound and at the plate as anyone in the state this year when looking at an overall body of work of a two-way player. Offensively, he hit .397 with 15 extra base hits – 7 doubles and 8 home runs in the toughest 3A and below league in the state, which also featured 2-1A champion Colgan who had a losing record in the loaded league. He logged 26 RBI, 32 runs scored, was walked 12 times and hit by pitch 8. On the mound, Stover went 7-1 with a 1.47 ERA in 57 innings pitched. He was undefeated against Kansas competition and picked up the pitching win in the first round of the state tournament for the second consecutive year. He gave up just 12 earned runs all season and struck out 56. Stover was also last season’s SIK 3A Pitcher of the Year but was just as impressive on offense this season. Stover, who throws in the high 80s, now looks towards the MIAA as he’ll play collegiately at Emporia State next season. Hunt saved the best for last as his grand slam home run gave the Spartans the state title in comeback fashion over Columbus. While he would’ve been in POY consideration regardless of the hit, it’s the hit that solidified it. With just that hit in the championship game it was the biggest hit of his life that propelled WCS to a 6-4 victory after trailing the entire game. He was big-time all-season hitting .500 for the Spartans on the way to winning back-to-back state titles. Hunt had 10 doubles and five home runs this season as he earned AVCTL-4 Player of the Year. He will play at Cloud County Community College next season. Wichita Collegiate also split with 4A champion, McPherson, this season, playing a very solid schedule against 4A and 3A competition. Hunt also caught both pitchers of the year this season in Hayden Malaise and Brett Black, who had back to back incredible years for the repeat champions. You can’t ask for a much better finish to a high school career than what Brady Hunt just did this year. Landin Midgett of Columbus and Easton Norris of Trinity Academy also received very high interest in all-state and POY voting.

Sports in Kansas 3A Pitchers of the Year: Hayden Malaise, Wichita Collegiate & Brett Black, Wichita Collegiate

The two teammates were once again dominant in 2023 for WCS. Malaise and Black earn SIK Pitcher of the Year as Collegiate wins back-to-back state titles in 3A. Malaise was the 2022 SIK 3A Player of the Year as he is a standout two-way player for the Spartans. Especially dominant on the mound this season, Malaise pitched 47.1 innings with an 8-1 record and 4 saves. His 1.54 ERA came with 96 strikeouts and he gave up just 21 hits all year. Malaise is heading to Cloud CC to play collegiately in the tough Jayhawk conference. Black struck out 92 batters in 52 innings pitched to make the best 1-2 punch in the small classes of high school baseball this season. Black was 5-1 on the season and was also a first team all-state pick last season. He will play at Friends University next season. Cole Linton also received high praise from several voters for his huge junior season at Goodland.

Sports in Kansas 3A Baseball Coach of the Year: Joe Gehrer, Wichita-Collegiate

Gehrer led the Spartans to a second straight state title. Until last year’s championship, Collegiate had not won a state title since 2001 – when Gehrer was a player and his father, Mike Gehrer was head coach. Mike is now an assistant for his son on these two latest state championship teams. The Spartans finished the season 22-4 and defeated Sabetha, Humboldt, and Columbus for the crown. Collegiate also had Hayden Malaise (Pitcher of the Year), Brett Black (Pitcher of the Year) and Brady Hunt (Player of the Year) honors from Sports in Kansas this season.

Sports in Kansas 2-1A Players of the Year: Cooper Simmons, St. Mary’s-Colgan & Braden Young, Little River

Simmons hit .438 with 15 extra base hits and four homers for the Panthers in his junior season as Colgan claimed the 2-1A state baseball title. Level of competition mattered in this POY race to the voters as Simmons and the Panthers played by far the toughest schedule in 2-1A as they had 11 regular season losses all to 3A-6A level schools before cruising to the 2A championship. The Panthers played three schools in Missouri that would be classified in Kansas Class 6A. As well as faced 3A runner-up Columbus twice and the rest of their schedule being against 3A and above as they played only six 2-1A schools all year, all in the post-season. Simmons logged 23 RBI and 13 runs scored while drawing 16 walks. At catcher, he started every game but one, which he started on the mound with 182 putouts and a .979 fielding percentage with eight runners caught stealing. Simmons was a second team all-state pick as a freshman in 2021 after earning first team in 2022 and 2023 from Sports in Kansas. Also, an all-state football player, Simmons is one of the top multi-sport athletes in the CNC and across the state. Expect a big senior year from the 2024 prospect that could have opportunities in both football and baseball at the next level. While the voters factored in and valued Simmons level of competition this season and title, they also didn’t discount what Braden Young of Little River did either as it ended in a tie in voting along with a close race from Elkhart’s duo of Kage Ralstin and Cesar Gomez. The Little River senior hit over .650 this season with 22 RBI, 52 runs scored and had 35 stolen bases. He also had a 4-0 record on the mound with a 2.45 ERA. Young was a huge part of the 2022 state runner-up team and finished off a solid career at LR that saw head coach Terry Renken pick up his 200th victory this season. Little River had just 11 players out this season. Young plays short stop, catcher and pitcher for the Redskins (20-2). LR was faced with the toughest first round matchup in the 2-1A state tourney in facing Colgan as they lost 12-5.

Sports in Kansas 2-1A Pitcher of the Year: Kage Ralstin, Elkhart 

Ralstin earns 2-1A Pitcher of the Year after posting an impressive .834 ERA in 50.1 innings pitched. He went 10-1 with 112 strikeouts on the season as Elkart finished 21-2 on the season and finished 3rd at the 2-1A state tournament. Additionally, Ralstin hit .432 with 34 RBI for the Wildcats. Ralstin has shown much determination and resiliency in his career, having vision in only one eye following an accident when he was just 10 years old. He will continue his baseball career collegiately at Butler CC. 

Sports in Kansas 2-1A Baseball Coach of the Year: Mike Watt, St. Mary’s-Colgan

Legendary Colgan head coach Mike Watt now has 17 state titles with the Panthers – the most all-time in Kansas HS state history. 30 years ago, he won his first in 1993. Colgan has 21 baseball titles in program history overall. This year’s state title team went 15-11, playing a gauntlet of a regular season schedule with several larger schools to prepare for the 2-1 state tournament. The Panthers, the 8 seed, defeated Little River, Onega, and Marion for the state championship. Watt has earned multiple nods as the Sports in Kansas Coach of the Year over the years. The future will be bright for Colgan returning three all-state first team selections in 2-1A for next year.
