Verdigris senior Cody Bressie looks for a base-stealing opportunity during a home game against McAlester on March 31.

The Oklahoma Baseball Coaches Association released its 2022 All-State rosters Thursday, and one Rogers County athlete made the cut.

Highlighting the 14-player Middle East roster was Cody Bressie of Verdigris, who is listed as one of three pitchers for the team. The senior went 5-0 on the mound during the regular season, tossing 43 strikeouts with an ERA of .000 while surrendering only four runs (zero earned) and three walks.

Bressie helped the Cardinals to a 30-5 record this season, including district and regional titles.

He will be coached by the duo of Fort Gibson’s Gary Edwards and Darron Henson of Kingston.

Here is the full Middle East roster:
