College Baseball Poll - Collegiate Baseball Newspaper

PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release: Friday (January 25, 2008)

DON BOSCO PREP NO. 1 IN EASTON SPORTS COLLEGIATE BASEBALL NEWSPAPER PRE-SEASON POLL

TUCSON, Ariz. After playing second fiddle to last year's top ranked Seton Hall Prep, Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, NJ) has been ranked No. 1 in the 2008 Easton Sports Pre-Season National High School baseball poll.

For two straight years, Bosco (27-2) has been the Bergen County champions, and last year they were the NNJIL league champions, finishing No. 2 in the state behind Seton Hall Prep.

This year, Bosco has all the horses to win not only a state title but a national championship.

"This will be a very special year," said Coach Greg Butler. "We have a terrific group of kids that excel on and off the field. They have a great work ethic and a wonderful team chemistry."

This team is deep as six seniors singed early at Division 1 programs and four others who may play in college next year. Four players have been getting serious attention from the pros.

Anchoring the pitching staff is RHP Mike Dennhardt (9-0, 0.70 ERA), LHP Eric Pfisterer (6-0, 2.1 ERA), LHP Sam cerbo and RHP Mike O'Keefee.

Top position players include 3B Steven Proscia (.510, 10 HR, 46 RBI), CF/2B Michael Vargas (.540 BA), and C Ben Luderer (.500 BA). They are joined by two juniors SS Anthony Gomez (.560 BA) and LF Brett Knief (.400 BA).

"We are much deeper and stronger than any team I have been associated with over the past 20 years," Butler said.

For more on the top 30 pre-season teams, see the January 25, 2008 edition of Collegiate Baseball. For a state-by-state list of top teams to watch this season, see the February 8, 2008 edition.
