PRESIDIO – Presidio Blue Devil student athlete varsity baseball player Albian Amancio was recently honored as the District 3-3A Most Valuable Player for 2018. And so, the soon-to-be junior adds that trophy to the district Pitcher of the Year honor he received as a freshman. As a sophomore this year, Albian displayed tremendous composure as a pitcher for the varsity Blue Devils. Albian pitched the winning games in the team’s 7-11-1 season this year, had two losses, but two saves. In district play, he pitched 52 innings, with 113 strike outs, allowing just 23 hits and 18 runs, for an amazing ERA of 1.35. When he went from the mound to home plate, Albian had a .428 batting average on his 77 times at bat, with 33 hits, 11 runs, 12 doubles, five triples, 28 runs batted in, and a home run. Whew! Albian said he is looking forward for a bright future and will be an incoming junior in August. He is coached by his father, Alonso Amancio, the head baseball coach for Presidio High School.
