Jamill Moquete

Division 2: Madison Park, Senior
Moquete, a four-year varsity starter, has been the catalyst of the two-time Boston City League champions. He hit .405 with eight homers and 29 RBI, all with an injured shoulder that kept the third baseman from playing his natural position.

Zach Smith

Silver Lake, P
The only thing that outshined Smith's performance at the plate - a .431 average with two home runs and 14 stolen bases - was his performance on the mound. The Gordon College-bound senior was 9-2 with a 0.85 ERA and struck out 131 in 82 innings.
