WC had 2 pretty good pitchers last year. Did they graduate? If so, where did they go to college? I can not remember the names.

 

One of their names is Clinton Hollen. The kid has been clocked at 94mph as a sophomore according to perfectgame.com. He is a junior this year and definately will be the workhorse of the Jackets.

Hollon is very gifted, though has been described as somewhat raw--gifted enough for Perfect Game to rank him number 2 nationally in his high school class. The East Coast Pro Showcase is made up some of the best high school players in the country, mostly of high school seniors to be; yet Hollon, a junior this year, received a lot of attention.

 

Blog from Perfect Game East Coast Pro Showcase:

 

“2013 RHP Clinton Hollon(Lexington, KY) is currently the #2 ranked pitcher in the 2013 class on the Perfect Game list. He didn't throw especially well at the PG Junior National Showcase in mid-June but he was lights out a couple of times out of the bullpen at the WWBA Tournaments in Marietta in July, topping out at 96 mph.”

 

“Hollon was 93-97 mph in his first inning of work here, throwing from an effortless delivery and high 3/4's release point with great extension out front. The velocity comes pretty easy for him. Hollon throws a 76-79 mph curveball that has good spin but he slows his body well before release on the pitch and it has plenty of developing to do.”
