Scott City, senior, 2017 Male Athlete of the Year
The multi-sport standout is a baseball player first, and he showed it by shutting down the opposition from the hill and pounding opposing hurlers from the batter’s box. Cox hit .532 on the season with 28 runs batted in and 32 scored, an on-base percentage of .683, 11 doubles, a pair of home runs and 22 stolen bases. On the mound, Cox went 7-1 with a 2.29 ERA in 52 innings pitched, striking out 78 batters and walking just 17. He was the Scott-Mississippi Conference Player of the Year for a second consecutive year.
