Last week Andrew tossed his first career no-hitter in getting his third win of the season. The Orangeman are off to a nice 9-6 start.
"Andrew is one of the best athletes I've ever had the privilege of coaching with his speed and pitching ability" said Ellet Baseball coach John Sarver.
Myers is 3-1 on the hill with an impressive 1.52 ERA plus he has added fuel to the Ellet offense hitting .442 with 11 RBI's. On the mound he has 33 strikeouts in 23 innings.
"I have loved baseball since I stepped on the field" Myers said.
Andrew is a three sport athlete at Ellet having played varsity football and basketball along with his outstanding career in baseball. He played wide receiver on Joe Yost's football team this past fall.
Myers not only takes sports serious but he also is focused in the classroom as he is taking classes at the University of Akron already to prepare himself for next year.
"I will already have 27 college credits by the time I start college which will help me make the tough transition to college and I hope help me adjust to college baseball" Myers said.
"With his speed on defense and on the bases he finds a way to always make the big play for us in the games that mean the most" Sarver said.
Andrew has a 3.0 GPA.
