Acker had a dream season for the No. 6 Raiders, who finished the season 18-2 and 17-0 in Howard County in the regular season.

The senior batted .541 in 61 at-bats, contributing 33 hits, 10 doubles, four home runs, two triples and nine stolen bases. He scored 36 runs, struck out only three times and was named Howard County Player of the Year by county coaches.

"Brady was a leader on our team, both vocally and by example," Atholton coach Jon Dupski said. "The other players respond to him and the example he sets. He had the ability to turn games around, and he's a major reason why we won the county championship."

Dupski says Acker's attitude will be a major factor in determining how he performs at George Mason next season.

"His work ethic will earn him all the success he deserves," Dupski said. "If he works on his arm strength, then he has the ability to be a five-tool player. He was a four-year starter for us, and you just can't replace a guy like him. They are few and far between."
