Lewis, Snider, Polk garner All-State Baseball honors

Three local baseball players  Jaken Snider of Elgin, Tyler Polk of Duncan and Luke Lewis of Fort Cobb-Broxton  were honored by the Oklahoma Coaches Association last week when they made the All-State baseball team.

Each had plenty of success this season  both individually and for their teams  as all three propelled their clubs to their respective state tournaments. Snider helped Elgin win the Class 4A state title.

'Dirty work' pays off for Lewis

Doing the dirty work rarely receives the glamorous attention it should.

But the dirty work is what Luke Lewis has specialized in  both on the hardwood and on the diamond  the past four years with Fort Cobb-Broxton.

Lewis has played in 11 state tournaments throughout high school  seven baseball (fall and spring) and four basketball.

Believe it or not, doing the dirty work in basketball  muscling through the paint, scrapping for rebounds and loose balls or blocking shots  has helped Lewis relish his dirty work in baseball where he plays first base. Quite often, first basemen are burdened by the tall task of fielding errant throws or lunging and twisting their bodies in every which direction to secure an out while miraculously keeping their feet on first base.
