Horatio Baseball 2014
2014 Class 3A All-State
Kade Caudle – Senior/Shortstop
Kade, who spent the last nine years as either a player or manager with the Horatio Lions, was a catalyst of the Lion’s offense at the top of the batting order. His season’s totals include a .389 batting average, an on-base percentage of .504, he led the team in at-bats (95), hits (37), doubles (tied w/8), walks (tied w/19), runs (52), and stolen bases with 40 which is a new school record (Dillon Blankenship-37/2009).
Quote from Coach: “If Kade is not the hardest working, most dedicated player I’ve ever coached he is on a very short list. He is at the field or in the weight room daily, grinding it out. He’s been a pleasure to coach.”
Jordan Izzo – Senior/Pitcher
Izzo compiled an impressive 7-3 record on the mound this season for the Lions with a miniscule 0.942 ERA. In 52 innings of work he allowed only 39 hits and 19 runs (only 7 of which were earned), while striking out 63 and giving up only 19 walks.
Jordan was also one of 3A baseball’s top catchers, nailing 10 of 22 would be base-stealers and he led the team in homeruns (tied w/4), RBI’s with 26 and hit-by-pitches (12).
Quote from Coach: “Jordan is another player who served as a manager before becoming a standout player here. His work ethic, quiet intensity and leadership, and his ability to take the game one pitch at a time have been examples for our entire organization to follow. He is also a first class young man.” Jordan was awarded the C.E. Hendrix Award earlier this year by the HHS faculty that is awarded to the senior athlete exhibiting the “most character and leadership”.
Cole Boyd – Sophomore/Outfielder
Cole was an offensive star for the Lions, hitting third in the lineup for the majority of the season. Boyd led the team with a .393 batting average and he was also first in doubles (8), homeruns (tied w/4), walks (tied w/19), on-base percentage (.532), and slugging percentage (.631). He also stole 15 bases.
Boyd defense was as good as his offense with a strong throwing arm and the ability to make “web gem” type catches at the most crucial times.
Quote from Coach: “Cole is a great guy with loads of talent. He won’t be the biggest guy on the field, but his bat speed and arm strength are very impressive and will make it seem like he is. He loves to play the game and his passion makes others around him raise their game to another level.”
Tanner Vaught – Sophomore/Pitcher
Tanner, who along with Izzo made up the Lion’s Monday-Friday conference pitching rotation, helped lead the team to an all-time team record ERA of 1.81. In five conference starts Vaught was 3-2 with a 1.67 ERA. On the season he pitched 54 innings, allowing only 41 hits, 19 runs (7 earned), with 58 strikeouts and only 16 walks. His season ERA was 1.16.
Quote from Coach: “Tanner has tremendous talent and the ability with hard work to pitch on the next level. He throws a “hard” ball with a lot of sink and his command of the strike zone is his strongest attribute. With Tanner and the other two sophomore pitchers (Hunter Lansdell and Cole Boyd), (pitching) Coach Josh Fleming and I are very excited about our future”.

JAKE ARNDT RECEIVES ROTARY CUP
The De Queen Rotary Club named Quarterback Jake Arndt as the 79th recipient of the prestigious Rotary Cup at Wednesday’s noon meeting. The award that dates back to 1936 is given annually to the outstanding senior on the Leopards football team. Besides performance on the field, the Rotary Cup is also based on scholarship, leadership, and participation in other school-related activities.
Arndt led the Leopards in receiving as a junior in 2012 with 20 catches for 346 yards and two touchdowns, before accepting the challenge to change positions to quarterback for his senior season in 2013. Arndt completed 108 passes for 1,209 yards and eight touchdowns during the fall campaign.
Arndt also excels in the classroom with a 3.27 grade point average. He’s involved with the National Honor Society and Future Farmers of America. He also competes in basketball and baseball for the Leopards. After graduation in May, Arndt plans to attend the University of Central Arkansas and pursue a career in physical therapy.
