TREVOR GRAHAM
FRANKLIN PIERCE RAVENS

Coach Jayson King on Trevor Graham:

"Trevor Graham is the absolute MVP of our team this year and it is not even close. He had good starts every time out and continually went long into games. He closed out our third win of the regional on one days’ rest and won the first game with a shutout and was named Most Outstanding Player of the regional. He has great work ethic both on and off the field and we could have been a .500 team without him this year, that’s how much he has meant to us.  If there is someone who did more for their team than Trevor did for us, I would be surprised."

Maybe there are some regions out there where a team can win a regional title without a true ace pitcher. In the East? With wood bats? No way. He won Pitcher of the Year in a conference that is more famous for churning out top-flight pitchers than any other league in the country at this level. In the first round of the Northeast-10 Championship, he was hit for three earned runs on six hits and only struck out five over six innings… and that was probably his WORST start of the year; there are guys out there who would kill to do that every time out, let alone to be better than that every day.

It’s always tough to tell how much mentality plays into the performance of a baseball team. But, I would guess that taking the field just KNOWING you’re going to get a pitching performance that’s good enough to win? That probably doesn’t count for nothing, and Trevor Graham provided that every time out there all year long. Except, he was just getting warmed up. He took the ball to open the East Regional and just buried Wilmington: three-hit shutout, 10 strikeouts, one batter to third base in the game. They never had a shot. Two nights later, with the team fighting for its life, against an arch-rival, on their field, he comes in to get the final out in the bottom of the 13th inning. Are you kidding me? That’s the stuff they make movies about. Marty Dunlap caught that night, and he might have said it best after the game: “He pitched two days ago, nine innings, so you can’t really say much about it. He’s just, uhh… It’s awesome.” The appropriate words really just don’t exist.
