Former Canyon del Oro baseball standout Spencer Packard was named to the Big South Preseason All-Conference Team by Perfect game and he also earned preseason “Player of the Year” status.
This list will be updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who have gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but collegiate and professional recognitions. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS. If you are aware of anything I have missed along the way, please let me know.
