had one player (Grayson Jones, 11th round Atlanta Braves) drafted in the major league
draft. After winning the 7A state championship last year (the first state championship in
school history), Coach Mauldin is looking forward to the challenge of continuing the
process of building a program that will compete on the state and national level. Last year
his team finished ranked 34th in the country according to max preps.
"We are looking forward to the fifth year of the building process of our program. The last
four year's teams laid a great foundation of what it takes to be a champion on and off the
field. It is very important for our current players and coaches to continue the building
process. Our varsity, JV and middle school programs all play championship level
baseball and represent our schools and community on and off the field with respect. We
started to build a winning attitude and we will continue the process of having a winning
culture. Our city of Trussville has had a big impact on our teams' success the last four
years. The community support has been unlike anything we have ever seen. Seeing
thousands of Trussville fans pack out Phil English field and travel to Montgomery for the
state championships is what our city is about. We look forward to the continued support
from the great city of Trussville, as we work together to build a program that our
community will be proud of for many years to come."
