Science Hill’s Brandon Feathers and Elizabethton’s Tre Shoun were among the players honored Wednesday on the Tennessee Sports Writers All-State baseball team.

Feathers, who helped Science Hill reach the state tournament, was a pick for the Class AAA squad as a pitcher. Tennessee High’s Banks Presson, the Johnson City Press/Kingsport Times News Super 22 player of the year, was on the team as an infielder.

Shoun, who helped Elizabethton reach the state tournament, earned a spot as a pitcher on the Class AA team.

The honors for Feathers and Shoun were prestigious as only three pitchers from each classification were selected to the teams. Each squad also consisted of a catcher, four infielders, three outfielders, and a utility player.

Feathers posted a record of 9-2 with an ERA of 1.15. He pitched the Hilltoppers to victory in the sectional round with a shutout of Knox Karns.

Presson batted .479 with 10 homers and 58 RBIs while leading the Vikings to their second straight regional berth.

Shoun finished with a record of 10-2 and an ERA of 1.35 for the Cyclones.
