Main Street Preps/The Connection has selected its 2019 All-Robertson County baseball team.

The highest awards were dominated by East Robertson and Greenbrier. Both programs fell one win short of their respective state tournaments.

East Robertson sophomore Peyton Smith nabbed Most Valuable Player after a phenomenal showing on the mound and at the plate. Derek Wix earned Coach of the Year for guiding the Indians to a Class A state sectional.

Greenbrier was also well-represented on the all-county team. Catcher Luke Jones was named Hitter of the Year, while right-hander Trey Semore took Pitcher of the Year honors.

The All-Robertson County baseball team is comprised of players from five schools, including East Robertson, Greenbrier, Jo Byrns, Springfield and White House Heritage. White House players were named to the All-Sumner County team.

Nominations and statistics were submitted by all five head coaches, and the Main Street Preps staff made final decisions on the awards. The full team is listed below:

Most Valuable Player: RHP/1B – Peyton Smith, East Robertson, sophomore

2019 hitting stats: .359 AVG, 30 R, 42 H, 22 RBI, 14 2B, 3 HR, .425 OBP

2019 pitching stats: 0.83 ERA, 67.1 IP, 29 H, 8 ER, 18 BB, 116 K, 0.70 WHIP

Smith was dominant on the mound with a fastball that touched 90 mph, helping him maintain a 6:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He also finished third on the team in batting average. With two years of HS left, he’s already received interest from Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Xavier, among others.

Hitter of the Year:  C – Luke Jones, Greenbrier, senior

2019 stats: .460 AVG, 18 R, 40 H, 43 RBI, 13 2B, 7 HR, .575 OBP

Jones was the heartbeat of the Greenbrier lineup. He hit for average and power, started at catcher and served as the team’s main leader. He has signed to play at Tennessee Tech.

Pitcher of the Year: RHP – Trey Semore, Greenbrier, senior

2019 stats: 7 W, 2 L, 2.24 ERA, 84.1 IP, 51 H, 21 ER, 32 BB, 86 SO, 1.26 WHIP

Semore earned Pitcher of the Year honors for the second straight year after being Greenbrier’s No. 1 option on the mound. He struck out more than a batter an inning and showed excellent control by only allowing 32 free passes. He is set to begin his college career at Roane State this fall.

Coach of the Year: Derek Wix, East Robertson

Despite having a relatively young squad, Wix led his team to the District 9-A tournament title and a runner-up finish in the Region 5-A tournament. East Robertson then dropped a Class A sectional for the second straight year to powerhouse Loretto. The Indians finished 25-10 overall and return All-County MVP Peyton Smith and first-teamers Colton Harrison and Wesley Lamb next season.
