DP All-Academic Team: 2024

By: DP Staff – June 6, 2024 Diamond Prospects is excited to, once again, be able to celebrate the All-Academic Team and award one senior student-athlete as the Tripp Rabon Scholar Athlete of the Year. At DP we spend much of our time chasing physical tools, but as we do each year, we want to honor these young men that take care of business in the classroom too! Thank you to each high school coach and guidance counselor that nominated players with a premium GPA, SAT/ACT and class rank from their school/team. In 2016 the DP Scholar Athlete of the year award was renamed the Tripp Rabon Scholar Athlete Award in honor of Tripp Rabon (pictured) of Summerville. Tripp left us far too soon due to a car accident in December of 2015. He was an amazing young man who left a mark on everyone he came across both on the field and off. His success in the classroom was also well-documented and led DP to name the award after him. Last year the Rabon family contacted DP and set up the Inaugural Tripp Rabon Scholarship Fund to honor their son’s memory, our winner is now be the recipient of a $1,000 check for their classwork exploits! Since our first All-Academic Team in 2007, Clemson has received commitments from five Tripp Rabon Scholar Athletes. Furman, South Carolina, The Citadel, Wofford, Newberry and Coastal Carolina are the other schools to have signed recipients of the award in the past. These colleges have focused on not just the best on the field but the brightest off of it. Now it is time to reveal who this year’s Tripp Rabon Scholar Athlete is, along with the entire 2024 DP All-Academic Team… -DP’s Tripp Rabon Scholar Athlete of the Year-  Will Corn – May River High School, Clemson University – Class of 2024: Diamond Prospects is excited to announce Will Corn as the 2024 Tripp Rabon Scholar Athlete of the Year. Will excelled both on and off the field during his time at May River HS, earning 5A All-DP the past two seasons and putting together this senior campaign: .330 AVG, 4 doubles, 2 triples, 18 RBI, 17 SB; 5-2 on the mound with 1.93 ERA while compiling wins over James Island and AC Flora. BUT the reason why the Clemson-bound, Pre-Med Student is being honored on this page is for his prowess in the classroom throughout his high school career sporting a 5.35 weighted GPA and scored 1400 on the SAT. His class rank of 1/361 earned him the Valedictorian honor at May River High. There’s far more on the resume: Beaufort County School District Senior Scholar, AP/Honors Scholar with Distinction, College/Career Ready Seal of Distinction, National Honor Society with Merit, CTE Completer of Sports Medicine Pathway, Health Occupations Students of America Member, UN Global Goals Impact Merit Award, and for good measure, a Palmetto Fellows Scholarship. Corn is the fifth Tripp Rabon winner to attend Clemson (first since Bryce Cox, 2018) for his career path. Once again, congratulations to Will Corn on winning the award and for becoming the second recipient of the Tripp Rabon Scholarship gift from the Rabon family!  Now, it’s time for DP’s unveiling of the entire 2024 All-Academic team. Congratulations to all the deserving players who continue to put hard work in on the diamond, while simultaneously excelling in the classroom.  2024 All-Academic Team NameSchoolGrad YrGPASATACTClass RankChandler AdamsGeorgetown20255.101040–3Hank AeppliLucy Beckham20255.031310–14/401*Nolan AlexanderCarolina Forest20244.881260–16/670Baylon BedenbaughMidland Valley20254.551010–28/296Eli BishopCrescent20245.31–312Aidan BrightLake City20244.23––6Dion BrownLewisville20244.40–––Dylan ChristieMauldin20244.911179–64/588Jacob ClarkMid-Carolina20244.20–––Will CornMay River20245.351400–1/361Will CraddockTL Hanna20254.20–––Campbell DentonCamden20244.801060–19/203Thomas DietrichBishop England20245.501460292Blayne EdwardsLake City20254.96–251Landon FowlerPowdersville20254.40–––Caden FragolaOceanside20254.20–––Drew HayesSummerville20254.20–––Beau HollinsRiver Bluff20244.20–––Hunter HowardJL Mann20244.00–––Noah FranklinWest Ashley20254.25–––Elijah GrantSpartanburg20244.20–––Zechariah HaneyCamden20255.24–257/242Bryce HarderJL Mann20244.891260–23/401Lawson HarrisChapman20245.22––1/192Kason HerlongLake View20255.231210–1Jackson HiggsWalhalla20255.011390308Peyton HodgeChapman20245.15––4/192Conner HolmesGray Collegiate20245.001150–11Tyler JenkinsWest-Oak20255.171240–1James KakarasRiverside20244.62––104Easton KeelsByrnes20255.171330–5/732Charles KellyLucy Beckham20255.201420––Luke KingLake View20244.96–252Brody LinkerCrescent20245.14–279Brody KossRiverside20254.81––73Austin LaughlinCardinal Newman20244.891260––Wyatt LunsfordDorman20245.201290–19/905Wright McCallWalhalla20254.8012502714Connor McCorkleWalhalla20254.691150–24Andrew McLaughlinAshley Ridge20244.20–––Matthew MitchellGeorgetown20244.801100–16William “Bo” MoodyGeorgetown20255.101200–4Evan MoonPowdersville20244.7812702451/222PJ MorlandoSummerville20244.00–––Jackson MooreHartsville20244.35–––Alex MyersBlythewood20254.93–––Britton NashCatawba Ridge20254.881310–57/413Dru NelsonRiverside20244.77––80Owen NoonanCatawba Ridge20244.8512102428/339Cade NortonBlue Ridge20244.15–––Kaleb OwensEasley20243.82––60/393Cooper ParksYork20244.18–––Braxton PattonEasley20243.97––23/393Hunter PhippsDutch Fork20244.601220––Titus PooreLandrum20254.74––14/155Owen PowellGeorgetown20245.191190234Connor PriceByrnes20245.191300–18/497Billy RobertsonLugoff-Elgin20245.0313503223/284Ryan RogginLucy Beckham20254.901490–25/401Sean RouseSumter20244.471100––Zach RussellWest Ashley20244.30–19–Mason SalisburyBerkeley20245.201200–6/363Nate SanchezWalhalla20254.581120–29Dawson SiffriJL Mann20244.00–––Jonathan SonderfanEasley20254.00––1/369Thayer TavorminaSummerville20245.001270––Chase ThompsonRiverside20255.25––12Aaron TolbertEasley20253.82––46/369Mason TompkinsBlue Ridge20244.05–––John Walter WhisenhuntChrist Church20254.971450––Owen WattsLexington20254.10–––Luke WestrolRiverside20244.83––70Graham WhittleAirport20244.961140–7/255*Mitch WilsonDorman20244.721110–– *Denotes previous winner DP Note I: Only Junior and Seniors were considered for the All-Academic Team.
