LaViolette named All-American

Posted

Tompkins’ graduate Jace LaViolette was named a American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings High School All American this past week.

LaViolette had a huge senior season, hitting .601, with nine doubles, 13 triples and 11 homeruns while driving in 51 and scoring 53 runs.

He helped Tompkins reach the regional quarterfinals for the second straight season and to a District 19-6A championship.

LaViolette was just one of five players named an All-American from Texas and was one of just three from Texas to make the first team. He was also just one of three outfielders on the first team.

Rawlings names the All-American teams each year with the ABCA. The ABCA is the primary professional organization for baseball coaches among the amateur level, with 13,000 members in all 50 states and they release All-American teams for NCAA Division I, II and III along with NAIA, NJCAA, High School and Youth.

First recognized in 1969, the ABCA/Rawlings High School All-America Teams are selected by the ABCA High School All-America and Coach of the Year Committee, which is chaired by Jimmy Harris, head baseball coach at Stillwater High School (OK). The committee also includes coaches Scott Steltz of Chatham High School (NY), Aaron Haigler of Franklin County High School (VA), Tom Losauro of Lake Mary High School (FL), Ray Benjamin of St. Charles Prep High School (OH), Heath Gerstner of McPherson High School (KS), L. Scott Bullock of Rocky Mountain High School (CO) and Rigoberto Ledezma of Santana High School (CA).

Along with being named to the All-State team, LaViolette, a Texas A&M signee, was also named to the All-Region team that included some of Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas’ players.

Following is the full list of the ABCA,Rawlings High School All-American Team.
