Interested in Georgia High School Records for Softball, Baseball, Volleyball, or Swimming?
Did you know you could find some state records on Georgia Prep Country’s website? I played baseball at Statesboro High from 1981-1984. I still remember one of the Dad’s (Dr. George Lynch) saying we were going to see a pitcher that had supreme command of 4 pitches, Drew Tanner of Coffee County. He was right. Tanner was spot on the whole game. He holds the record for 519 strikeouts in a career which is a Georgia state record. And, a skinny little sophomore named John, managed to get to hit the ball that day…right back to Drew who threw me out at first base.
Oh yeah, and I watched Riccardo Ingram (actually, one of my teammates with a better memory said this was K.G. White…who went on to Georgia Tech, just like Riccardo) blast a pitch over my head in left field into the road behind the fence. I didn’t even need to move. Andre “Pulpwood” Smith was on that team too. “Pulpwood” went on to the University of Georgia to play football for a little while in a brief college career. Have fun checking out the site.
