Asher High School's baseball legacy is still on display, even through a pandemic.

Two Asher baseball seniors have received high honors for their accomplishments throughout their high school careers.

Trevor Martin was selected as an Oklahoma pre-season All American by the National High School Baseball Coaches Association.

"Trevor is a very gifted right-handed pitcher," said Asher head coach Scott Hamilton. "He has a great power pitcher's body. His fastball is 92-94 and comes out of his hand very effortlessly."

Martin has committed to Oklahoma State University to play baseball, and Hamilton said he has gotten some looks from professional scouts

"Pro scouts like him a lot and are anxious to watch his development at OSU," Coach Hamilton said.

Patch Hamilton was also recognized for his high school career by being awarded Region 6 Athlete of the Year by the Oklahoma Coaches Association.

Trevor Martin rounds the bases in first round of fall state games against Vici.

Patch is a two-sport star who excelled in both baseball and basketball.

"It is a huge honor for Patch to be selected as Region 6 Athlete of the Year by the coaches and athletic directors of SE OK," said Coach Hamilton, who is also Patch's father. "He is a tremendous two sport athlete regardless of school classification."

Patch hit .438 in the 2019 fall baseball season when Asher made it to the first round of the state tournament. He hit nine home runs during the season.

In basketball, Patch averaged 17 points per game.

"(Patch) has chosen to pursue baseball in college," the coach said. "He has signed a national letter of intent to play center field for Rose State College in Midwest City."
