He posted a .375 batting average despite recording just 24 at-bats. Enos collected nine hits including two doubles and a pinch-hit home run (against league rival Lehigh). The Stockton, Calif., native was a member of the Carolinas-Virginia Collegiate League’s Carolina Hurricanes this past summer after spending the summer of 2010 with the Stockton Glory.

In an elimination game victory against Iona Prep, Tejada reached base four times and drove in two runs. Jeremy has also played for the New York Gothams club team. He participated in the 2010 Perfect Game World Wood Bat Association World Championship in Jupiter, Fla.

Zach Weaver, St. John Fisher College
