Posted 5:57 PM 4/17/2012 : Pine Creek hurler this week's Athlete of the Week
Ryan Warner of Pine Creek High School is this week's Loaf ‘N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week.
Ryan is one of the top pitching prospects in the state of Colorado. He has gotten a bunch of visits from Major League scouts and is expected to be drafted this coming June.
The 6'7" senior has led the Eagles baseball team to an 8-2 record and he just fired a no-hitter against Fountain-Fort Carson last week.
"That was my first one ever," said Ryan. "It felt pretty good. Guys were going crazy. We had some good plays behind me so I really appreciated it. Usually that first batter, I can kind of tell where I'm at and what kind of pitches I have. I can usually find out what kind of game it's going to be like."
Ryan has received a baseball scholarship to play for North Carolina State, where he'll play next season, unless he decides to sign with a major league team that drafts him.
He also quarterbacked the Pine Creek football team to the 4A championship game this last season.
