BRAXTON LANE
Last year, Lane was named to the Aflac All-American team, proving he is one of the nation's elite talents. He is a career .400-plus hitter and has swiped more than 50 bases.

DONAVAN TATE
The North Carolina recruit and Aflac All-American slugged nine homers and drove in 43 runs to lead the Canes to the Class AAA state crown in 2008. He is rated the nation's No. 5 player in the ESPNU rankings.

CAMERON BEDROSIAN
With a fastball that pops in the mid-90s, it's no surprise Bedrosian's strikeouts nearly doubled last year, going from 65 as a sophomore to 108. He posted a 2.58 ERA to go with seven wins in 76 innings pitched.

ZACH WHEELER
On the hill, there aren't many better than the 6-foot- 4 fireballer. The No. 22 player in the ESPNU rankings, he posted a 1.31 ERA and fanned 127 batters to help East Paulding win 23 games in '08.

Coach's Take

AN AREA COACH ON MILES HEAD:
"You hate seeing him step in the on-deck circle, much less the batter's box. He is signed to Georgia, but probably won't make it to Georgia. He'll get drafted in the first couple rounds. Great pure hitter. He hits with authority."
