Newest Lion Shows Dominance in Athletics and in the Classroom
WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. - Between 1961 and 1966, Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed pitcher Sandy Koufax won three Cy Young Awards and led all National League pitchers in wins three times, earned-run average five times, strikeouts four times, shutouts three times, and complete games and innings pitched two times each. He was clearly the National League's dominating pitcher in the early and mid-1960's.
At Wesley Chapel High School, left-handed pitcher Brandon Mumaw has displayed a similar domination. This season, he finished with a 10-1 record and a 1.33 earned-run average, while striking out 72 batters. Beginning in his sophomore year, he had a streak of winning 18 straight games.
A first-team Pasco Tribune all-county selection, he was the first baseball player in school history to be selected to participate in last month's Florida Athletic Coaches Association State All-Star game.
In the fall, he will be attending Saint Leo University on a baseball scholarship.
