Coach Ryan Moity’s take: “Michael is a great competitor. He plays with a unique passion, loves the game, and does everything full speed. Michael has a high baseball IQ and great baseball instincts. He has been extremely successful on the field but even more instrumental in the building of our culture off the field. He is one of the toughest, strongest, hardest-working players I have ever coached and he is a lot of fun to be around. We will miss everything he has brought to our program over the last four years.”

Favorite pre-game meal: Chick-fil-A

Twitter handle: @R_David_2

Coach Stuart Chester’s take: “Ramsey is a fierce competitor on the mound. Combine that with his arm action and skill set, he can dominate a game. Ramsey commands three pitches. His fastball in the low 90s makes his other two pitches better. Ramsey has an easy low maintenance delivery which make him project well in the future. Ramsey’s drive and heart sets him apart from most high school athletes.”

Best player in Gwinnett Co. that’s not me: Ramsey David

Favorite pre-game meal: Chick-fil-A

Twitter handle: @_frenchjonathan

Coach Chan Brown’s take: “French is a dynamic player. He’s got every tool except for speed (maybe), and at catcher, we’re not really looking for speed. He can call a good game. He helps our staff call a good game. He’s really good behind the plate as far as blocking (pitches in the dirt). He brings a different aspect to the game being back there every game helping umpires see the ball better and all that.”
