OUTLOOK

American Heritage was a dominant team in 2020. A 10-0 record with one of the most loaded rosters in the state. Despite losing two of their top players in Enrique Bradfield Jr. (Vanderbilt) and Jordan Carrion (Florida), the Patriots are once again loaded in 2021. Pitching is the strength and will carry the team.  It is good enough to make a run in the playoffs and will determine how far they can go. One of the most talented rotations in the state with Devin Futrell (Vanderbilt), Justin Webster (Kansas State), Brandon Barriera (Vanderbilt), and Evan Dobias (Virginia). There is some young talent at many positions but should be able to score enough for their pitching to hold leads.
