Williamson named to North-South All-Star roster

T.R. Miller junior Drew Williamson was recently selected to compete in the Alabama High School Athletic Association North-South All-Star double-header games in July. The North-South All-Star double-header features rising seniors. Williamson is one of 18 players to make the South region roster.

Williamson had a batting average of .616 with eight home runs this season.

In 34 games this past season Williamson led the Class 3A top-ranked Tigers in nine offensive categories; including batting average (.616), runs scored (63), triples (2), home runs (8), on-base percentage (.764), and slugging (1.123).

In 127 plate appearances he had 47 walks, and only struck out four times.

The 6 foot 3 inch, 210-pound versatile Williamson played predominantly in the outfield this past season, but was featured as a top-tier first baseman and pitcher for the Tigers.

In August 2016 he verbally committed to play for the University of Alabama.

The North-South All-Star double-header games will be played on July 18, at Riverwalk Stadium in Montgomery. First pitch for game one is scheduled for 4 p.m.
