the Milford High School baseball seniors had one last hurrah at the Blue-Gold All-Star Game. Jerrell Allen took home the team MVP award, and all three Bucs who made the roster helped the downstate Gold squad earn a 9-9 tie.
Three Milford graduates made one last appearance on a high-school field for the annual Blue-Gold All-Star Game on June 11, but they weren’t the only Bucs there.
Along with Bucs stars Jerrell Allen, Devon Reed and Josh Gorney, Assistant Coach Nick Brannan who was named Henlopen Conference Assistant Coach of the Year, was part of the coaching staff that helped the Gold Team lock up a 9-9 tie against the upstate Blue squad.
“It was a great opportunity to see such a tremendous amount of talent on one baseball field,” Brannan said.
And a lot of that talent came from the Buccaneers, starting with Allen, the team MVP. He went 2-for-3 at the plate with two runs scored and three stolen bases.
“It was just electric,” Brannan said. “There’s not a catcher in the state who’s going to throw him out.”
Reed got on base and stole twice, while Gorney had a hit and a run scored for the Gold Team.
“Devon made it look effortless, and Josh came up huge — every run counted in that game,” Brannan said. “I can’t even put it into words, what a natural high it was just to be part of it. I couldn’t stop smiling.”
