Cherry Creek’s Jack Moss is Colorado Gatorade baseball player of year

Jack Moss only played four high school baseball games this spring due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the Cherry Creek senior’s work off the field and in previous seasons was enough for him to be named Gatorade’s Colorado player of the year Thursday.

Moss hit .500 with four doubles, four RBI and a .875 slugging percentage in 16 at-bats during his limited senior season. As a junior, the first baseball/outfielder hit .490 with 31 RBIs, 30 runs, 13 doubles and a .710 slugging percentage. He was also a 2020 Perfect Game Preseason All-American.

“Jack is one of the hardest workers I have ever coached,” Cherry Creek coach Marc Johnson said in a news release. “He is always honing his craft. He realizes if he is not getting better, someone else is. He takes pride in getting bigger, faster and stronger.”

Moss had previously been named Cherry Creek’s male athlete of the year for 2019-20. He served as president of the school’s Student Athletic Advisory Committee and volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, at a homeless shelter and at a food bank. With a weighted 3.92 grade-point average, he signed a letter of intent to play for national baseball power Arizona State.
