BRYAN -- A handful of East Texans were honored on the Texas Sports Writers Association/Collin Street Bakery Class 3A All-State Baseball Team, which was released Tuesday.

Carthage senior outfielder William Rittenberry and Pleasant Grove senior outfielder Trey Jeans nailed down second-team spots, while Rusk senior teammates Josh Raiborn and Vijay Stingley were selected to the third team.

College Station catcher Baylor Rowlett and his teammate, outfielder Ryan Johnson, shared state player of the year honors. Rowlett, an Oklahoma State pledge, batted .445 with eight home runs and 51 runs batted in. Johnson, a TCU pledge, batted .380 with six homers and 50 RBIs as the two juniors led College Station to a state title in only its second year of varsity competition.
