Baseball player of the year: Jackson Coutts, Orono
The senior was an outstanding pitcher and hitter for the Class C champion Red Riots.

Ask Jackson Coutts what his favorite position is and all you’ll get is a laugh. “As long as I’m able to hit, I’ll like any position,” he said.

Coutts sure can hit. He batted .632 this season with 11 doubles and two home runs while leading Orono to the Class C baseball state championship. Some teams refused to pitch to him. He was walked 25 times, 20 of them intentional, including three with the bases loaded.

He was a pitcher (8-1, 2.72 ERA and 71 strikeouts in 411/2 innings), shortstop and catcher. And he led off Orono’s four-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning with a first-pitch double as the Red Riots rallied to defeat Lisbon 4-3 in the Class C state championship game.
