In addition to John Curtis players dominating the 2017 New Orleans Advocate All-Metro Baseball team (see list elsewhere on this site), skipper Jeff Curtis was named Coach of the Year.
That gave the State Champion Patriots a sweep of the top two honors; Cade Beloso was named the Most Outstanding Player on the team.
The page that announced the team in this Sunday’s edition of the Advocate looked like a John Curtis poster, occupying the entire left side of the page and making it a special souvenir for Patriot fans. On top was a large photo of Cade and a story about him, followed by a photo and story about Coach Curtis.
Coach Curtis expressed his appreciation of all of the players and coaches in the Patriot baseball program, especially, coach Steve Curtis, coach Kyle Pierce, and Coach Matt Gambill.
The All-Metro team encompasses all teams in all classifications, making the selections even more significant. A banner year has been recognized by banner awards. Congratulations all around.
