Mullins is voted co-Player of the Year in Piedmont District

Franklin County senior pitcher/first baseman Cameron Mullins slides arms-first across home plate to score a run for the Eagles in a regular-season Piedmont District triumph over Tunstall in a game played in Dry Fork. Mullins is this year’s co-Piedmont District Player of the Year and one of eight FCHS players who has earned all-league accolades for the 2019 season.

Franklin County pitcher/first baseman Cameron Mullins, a third-year varsity performer, has been chosen co-Player of the Year in baseball in the Piedmont District by a vote of the league’s head coaches.

The Eagles, competing in their final Piedmont District campaign, finished 6-3 against league opposition during the regular season and lost to Patrick County in the quarterfinals of the postseason tournament.

The Eagles finished 14-7 overall.

Joining Mullins, a senior, are teammates Grayson Chitwood and Easton Forbes, both seniors, and junior Colton Kent.

Selected to the second team are senior Will Turner, juniors Hunter Cannaday and Brayden Merrick and sophomore Michael Williams.

Mullins (Emory & Henry), Chitwood (Ferrum) and Turner (Roanoke) have given non-binding verbal commitments to continue their baseball careers in the NCAA Division III Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) beginning this fall.

FCHS begins baseball play in the Blue Ridge District in the spring of 2020.
