Buckingham Browne & Nichols center fielder Rhett Wiseman was named Massachusetts Gatorade Baseball Player of the Year, the first-ever student athlete to be selected from BB&N.
Wiseman led the Knights (16-5) with a .444 batting average, eight home runs, 24 RBIs and 26 runs scored. The 6-foot-2 senior is a First Team Rawlings/Perfect Game All-American and three-time First Team All-League honoree.
His accomplishments have earned Wiseman the nation's No. 42 senior by ESPNHS. The student-athlete demonstrated leadership off the the field as the president of his class along with his participation in fundraisers to benefit the American Cancer Society.
Wiseman has committed to Vanderbilt University on a baseball scholarship.
