The accolades just keep coming. Just a week after being named to the Pasadena Star-News’ Baseball Player of the Year, Maranatha’s Dylan Covey was named to the Cal-Hi Sports All-State Baseball First Team. Glendora’s Adam Plutko and Bisohp Amat’s Rio Ruiz also were chosen from the San Gabriel Valley. It should be noted that every player is a senior except Ruiz.
UPDATE: Covey still is in negotiations with the Milwaukee Brewers. It’s not uncommon for negotiations to last until August. Covey feels confident he’ll sign and forgo his playing for the University of San Diego. Also, Covey was named to the Max Preps All-State Baseball Team and first-team all-America by USA Today.
