Toughest high school opponent: Team-wise, definitely Parkview just because they’re so sound all-around. One to nine, every single one can hit, and they play very good defense, and they usually have one or two (Division I) arms that can throw. The toughest pitcher I’ve faced is probably Brant Hurter of Woodstock. He’s 6-6 and long to the plate. He can run it up to 92, 94 mph, and it looks harder than that because he’s throwing from 54 feet because of how tall he is. He throws a curve, fastball and change. It’s tough to hit when he can locate all three.
