"The start of high school baseball season is only a week away and one of the players to watch in the WPIAL is only a sophomore.
Brendan McKay is a 10th-grader at Blackhawk High School who is a standout pitcher and outfielder. But his lofty reputation stretches much farther than the WPIAL. One publication has him ranked among the top sophomores in the country.
Maxpreps.com recently named the top 50 sophomores in the country -- and McKay is at No. 48. The ranking is impressive, considering the list is filled with players from warm-weather states. Florida has 12 players in the top 50 while California and Georgia also have a handful."
