Lineberry earns all-state honors
by Allen Worrell, Sports Editor
The honors continue to pour in for Carroll County first baseman Brandon Lineberry.
In addition to being named to the All-Southwest District and All-Region IV first teams, Lineberry has also been tabbed as an honorable mention selection to the Group AA All-State baseball team.
Lineberry was the only Cavalier underclassman to receive all-district honors in 2011 after a phenomenal season in which he batted an eye-popping .443. Aside from hitting for average, the Carroll junior also had plenty of power, smashing two home runs, six doubles and a triple. His slugging percentage of .643 was the second-highest total on the team. He also scored 15 runs and drove in 18 more as he helped lead the Cavaliers to a 12-10 record in 2011.
The Southwest District had a large representation on the Group AA All-State team as Richlands shortstop Bradley Strong was voted as State Player of the Year. Richlands second baseman Reece Strong was a second-team all-state pic, as was Tazewell designated hitter Zak Wasilewski.
