Orange’s Bryse Wilson has been voted North Carolina’s 3A baseball player of the year by the N.C. Baseball Coaches Association. Orange teammate Brad Debo and Chapel Hill’s Nick Hebert joined him only the coaches’ all-state team.
Wilson originally committed to North Carolina but instead signed with the Atlanta Braves organization after being a fourth-round MLB draft pick.
Wilson led Big Eight Conference pitchers in earned run average (0.75) and in pitching wins with his 10-2 record, which included six shutouts, three no-hitters and a perfect game in the 3A playoffs. Playing first base and batting cleanup, Wilson hit .333 and was second among Big Eight players in fielding percentage (.967).
Debo had the Big Eight’s top fielding percentage (.984). The South Carolina signee batted .446 this year.
Hebert led the Tiger starters in hitting with a .425 batting percentage and in slugging percentage (.586), and he had an on-base percentage of .500.
