HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Dylan Bundy and Morgan Brian didn't just win one for their school, community and genders — but for their sports as well.
The duo captured Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year Awards in a fanciful affair at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel on Tuesday night.
Bundy, who played for Owasso (Okla.), was a dominating right-handed pitcher and slugger and fourth overall pick in the Major League Draft. He's the first baseball player to win Gatorade's Male Athlete of the Year in the award's nine-year history. Other winners have included LeBron James, Dwight Howard and Kevin Love.
Bundy, also the MaxPreps.com Player of the Year, went 11-0 on the mound with a 0.20 ERA and 158 strikeouts and just five walks in 71 innings. He also batted .467 with 11 homers and 54 RBIs.
He beat out other national sport winners: basketball's Brad Beal from Chaminade (St. Louis, Mo.), cross country's Lukas Verzbicas from Sandburg (Orland Park, Ill.), track and field's Gunnar Nixon from Santa Fe (Edmond, Okla.), football's Justin Worley from Northwestern (Rock Hill, S.C.) and soccer's Luis Rendon from Cosby (Midlothian, Va.).
