The 6-foot-4, 185-pound Stephens, who has been perhaps the best player in the Catholic League this season, is batting .414 with eight doubles, three triples, five home runs, 39 RBI and seven stolen bases. Stephens is a fine outfielder with a good arm.
“I am tremendously happy for Davis and his family,” Holy Cross coach Andy Cannizaro said. “He has certainly earned every ounce of redognition he has gotten. He has turned himself into an outstanding player and a tremendous hitter. He will be play right field atr UNO pretty soon. He can hit for real power and he is a tremendous teammate. Blake Dean is getting an outstanding player.”
The Privateers have already secured another top player in District 9-5A in Jesuit shortstop Collin Loupe and have commitments from Archbishop Rummel shortstop Jake Cabeceiras and outfielder Ryan Smilari as preferred walk-on’s.
