A focused approach that started this past summer made Oxford High baseball player Zac Barber the most important player on the field for the Chargers this season.
For a team that had several good high school players on the roster but nobody that was headed to play at the Division I level next season, Barber was able to carry the Chargers to an unexpected 19-12 overall record and a spot in the Class 5A North Half title series.
Barber was able to accomplish a fantastic season through his dedicated work last offseason playing for Dulin’s Dodgers and with the Chargers. His skills at the plate and on the mound allowed him to win this year’s EAGLE Player of the Year award. (June 2, 2011, Page 1B)
