Two players from the New Orleans area and four from Louisiana were named first team on the MaxPreps All-American Baseball Team for Medium Sized schools.

Daniel Cabrera of John Curtis and Josh Magee of Franklinton were both selected to the squad, released Thursday night.

Cabrera, an LSU commit who just completed his sophomore season, made the team as a utility player.

McGee, who just completed his senior season and was drafted by the San Diego, made it as an outfielder.

Both players were members of The New Orleans Advocate’s All-Metro Team.

Cabrera batted a team-best .566 with 10 doubles, three triples and six home runs while driving in 31. On the mound, the left-hander went 6-1 with a 1.79 ERA, striking out 60 batters in 39 innings and walking just 12. Opponents batted .184 against him.

Magee, who committed to Southern Miss before deciding to go pro, batted .529 for the Demons. He helped lead Franklinton to the Class 4A quarterfinals. He also had 29 RBIs, 10 doubles, six triples and a home run with 20 stolen bases.

The other Louisiana players to be named first team were South Beauregard pitcher Nick Lee and St. Thomas More infielder O’Neal Lochridge. Lee and Lochridge were both seniors.

No Louisiana players made the second team.
