*****Great job Wil, you just keep on making all the sports fans and especially the baseball fans in Guilford County proud of you. MaxPreps has a very good eye for talent.*****

In a year filled with some outstanding catchers, Wil Myers of Wesleyan Christian Academy (High Point, N.C.) proved that he was one of the best in the nation, going to the Kansas City Royals in the third round of the Major League Draft last month.

A four-time all-state selection in North Carolina, Myers edges out fellow catcher Austin Maddox of Eagle’s View Academy (Jacksonville, Fla.) and South Carolina infielder Chris Owings for the MaxPreps Small Schools All-American Most Valuable Player honor.

Myers made his mark as one of the best hitting catchers in the draft. He hit for a .532 average and had 14 home runs at Wesleyan. If Myers does not sign with the Royals, he will likely attend the University of South Carolina.
