The accolades continue to accumulate following the outstanding season for Highland Park pitcher Layne Looney, who has been named as a first-team all-state selection by the Texas Sports Writers Association.
He also received first-team honors earlier this summer from the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association, and was named to the MaxPreps Underclass All-America team. Looney was named the MVP of District 10-4A for leading HP to a runner-up finish in the league.
During his junior season, Looney posted a 12-0 record with a 0.53 earned-run average and 119 strikeouts. He also led the Scots with a .370 batting average.
