Two Yellow Jackets Headed to Harrisonburg

Continuing a tradition of success, Georgia Tech will have two players suit up for the Turks this season. 22nd year coach Danny Hall’s Yellow Jackets are having a very good season so for (23-8) and will have a deep roster of talent headed to summer leagues as well. Our Yellow Jackets turned Turks are infielder Trevor Craport and right hand pitcher Jake Lee.

Trevor Craport - GA Tech 2016 Trevor is a 5’11, 201 pound sophomore from Norcross, Georgia. He is having a solid season, hitting .326 in 89 at-bats playing mostly third base. He has also accrued 29 hits, one home run, and 11 runs batted in. Trevor also pitched in his freshman season posting a 4.73 ERA in seven relief appearances. Prior to his Georgia Tech career, Craport was a standout at Norcross High School, where he was an All-State utility player his senior season while batting .395 and knocking in 23 runs.

 

Jake Lee - GA Tech 2016Jake is a 5’11, 170 pound freshman pitcher for Georgia Tech. In 10 appearances in 2016, Lee has a 6.46 ERA with one win coming against Western Carolina in three innings of work where he allowed two hits and no runs. He also picked up a save against Georgia Southern, striking out one and allowing no earned runs in the ninth inning. At Whitewater High School in Fayetteville, Georgia, Lee won multiple honors his senior year, when he was named 5-AAAA Region pitcher of the year as well as GHSA Co-State Pitcher of the Year. He went 11-2 with a 0.89 ERA, and fanned 102 batters on his way to leading the Wildcats to a 21-4 record.

The talent and character of the players from Georgia Tech and the ACC overall has been a real plus for the Turks. Georgia Tech standouts Thomas Smith, Thomas Nichols, Sam Dove and Wade Bailey just to name a few. We look forward to meeting our new Turks and having a great summer on and off the field.
