Windermere High baseball’s Ty Head has been named an American Baseball Coaches Association All-American and Gold Glove winner. 

Head is the only Central Florida player recognized in both honors.

To go along with his selection to the ABCA All-American third team and Gold Glove team, he also was named the Orange County Male Athlete of the Year and selected to the FACA All-Star game. 

Head, an NC State commit and possible first-round MLB draft selection, led the Wolverines from the plate with a .408 batting average, 44 runs scored, 19 RBIs, two home runs and 28 stolen bases.
