Russell County seniors Nathan Lawson and Cody Luttrell have earned first-team all-state honors, voted on by the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association.
Lawson has been productive on offense and as a pitcher.
At the plate, Lawson has 51 hits, 45 RBI, 14 doubles, 12 home runs, and 14 walks, with a .464 batting average.
Lawson is tied for fourth in the state in home runs and is top 30 in hits, RBI, and doubles.
On the mound, he’s pitched 66 innings (top 20 in the state) and has a 0.85 ERA, which is ninth lowest statewide. He is 10-2 on the season, with his 10 wins tied for second most in the state.
Lawson has only given up 32 hits, 14 runs (eight earned) and walked 20 batters this season.
Luttrell earned the nod based on his dominance as a pitcher.
He leads the Lakers with 70.2 innings pitched this season (fifth most in the state) and has the most wins in Kentucky high school baseball with 12. He boasts a 0.50 ERA, good for fifth in the state, although Luttrell has pitched 25 innings more than the next closest player of the four pitchers ahead of him in ERA.
Luttrell is tied for second in the state with 132 strikeouts. With only 11 walks, he has a 12:1 K/BB ratio. He’s only allowed 40 hits and 16 runs (five earned) and also added a save to go along with his perfect 12-0 record.
