Cajun Signees Marks, Leger Named Prep All-Americans

The 2014 season for Ragin' Cajuns Baseball was a campaign filled with honors and history. Now as the offseason begins, the next crop of Louisiana baseball players are already piling up the accolades. St. Thomas More's Wyatt Marks and Barbe's Gunner Leger named High School All-Americans Thursday by Louisville Slugger and Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.

Marks was named to the First Team after an All-State senior campaign for the State Champion St. Thomas More Cougars. On the mound, Marks was 8-1 with a 0.76 ERA while striking out 87 batters in just 64.2 innings. The 6-3, 205 pounder threw 7 complete games and allowed only 7 earned runs with four shutouts on the season.

"Marks has a physically imposing build with great athleticism," Ragin' Cajun head coach Tony Robichaux said back on signing day. "We feel like he has a very high ceiling with a fastball that is in the low 90s. He competes at high level and can make a big statement for us."

Barbe High's Gunner Leger named a second team All-American after a prolific senior year helping lead the Bucs to the 2014 LHSAA Class 5A State Titles and thought of by many as the overall top prep team in America.

Leger did it all for the Bucs both on the mound and at the plate. The lefty was a perfect 11-0 with a 1.94 ERA with 65 strike outs in 72 innings pitched. Leger tallied 8 complete games, 2 shutouts and yielded just 20 earned runs. At the plate, the 6-3 205 pounder hit at a .438 clip, driving in 36 RBIs, 37 runs and 3 home runs.

"Gunner is a very physical left-handed pitcher with room to grow and fill out," said Robichaux on signing day. "He comes from a prestigious program and is a great competitor that is accustomed to winning. He has three good pitches and is also a skilled defender at first and can swing the stick at the plate."
