Congratulations to senior Bryce Bush, one of two finalists for the “Walt Bazylewicz Athlete of the Year Award” presented to outstanding athletes in the Catholic High School League (CHSL).
Bryce, along with another finalist, will be honored on May 22, at Comerica Park, between C-D Championship (10 a.m. start) and the A-B Championship (12:30 p.m. start). The award winner is Elijah Collins of University of Detroit Jesuit.
Bryce has been an outstanding member of the De La Salle Varsity Baseball Team, and is committed to Mississippi State University.
Tickets are available for $6. the day of the CHSL Finals at Comerica.
Athletic Director Mike Watson says, “What Bryce has accomplished has made it clear that he is not only one of the most gifted athletes at the Collegiate, but also among the entire Catholic League. Most believe that Bryce’s baseball talents also place him in special company among players across the country. Most importantly, Bryce continues to be a fine student and an even better young man. Whether on the field, in the classroom, or in the community, Bryce will continue to be a great representative of De La Salle and the entire Catholic League.”
Head Baseball Coach Dave Zelmanski says, “Bryce has handled the transition to a new position, shortstop, better than anyone expected. He leads by example and is as fine a young man as I have ever been around. His future is both exciting and uncertain. I wish him nothing but the best as he winds down his senior year on the diamond.”
