Tenn.), Chipper Jones (1989-90, Bolles School, Fla.), Derek Lee (1992-93, El Camino HS, Calif.) and John Lester (2001-

“Trevor Lane was the best pitcher we faced all year,” said Ryan Carter, head coach at Kamiakin High. “He plays a great
centerfield too and in the game we faced them, he threw a runner out at home to end the game. He is absolutely a wellrounded ballplayer.”
Lane remains undecided upon a collegiate destination.
The Gatorade Player of the Year program annually recognizes one winner in the District of Columbia and each of the
50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys
and girls soccer, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track & field, and awards one National Player of the Year in each
sport. The selection process is administered by ESPNHS and the Gatorade high school sports leadership team, which
work with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to
determine the state winners in each sport.
Lane joins recent Gatorade Washington Baseball Players of the Year Trevor Mitsui (2010-11, Shorewood High School),
Drew Vettleson (2008-09 & 2009-10, Central Kitsap), Rusty Shellhorn (2007-08, Central Valley), and Greg Peavey (2006-
07, Hudson’s Bay), among the state’s list of former award winners.
