There’s not much that Corey Pickens doesn’t do for the Summit baseball team.Pickens, a senior, is leading the Jaguars on the mound and in the batter’s box. Summit is off to a 4-1 start in District 15-4A and looking to make a run at the district title. With Pickens, coach Chris Peacock has a leader both on the field and off.Through 21 games, Pickens leads Summit in almost every offensive category. He boasts a .441 batting average with 26 RBI, highest on the team.In addition, he’s belted a team-high five home runs with five doubles.“He’s done a really good job,” Peacock said. “We knew he had the ability to put up big numbers and he’s done a great job, he's swung the bat as good as we could possibly ask.“He’s got guys in front of him in the order getting on base and he’s done a great job driving those guys in.”Thanks to Pickens and the rest of the senior-laden Summit lineup, the Jaguars are averaging 11 runs per game in district play. Before the season started, Peacock was hoping for a bit more consistency with his team’s offense.He wasn’t expecting this kind of outburst, however. It’s been a more-than-pleasant surprise for Peacock.“We’ve swung the bats well, it’s led to some big games,” he said, perhaps referencing Summit’s 17-1 win against Arlington Seguin or Summit’s 16-2 thrashing of Lake Ridge. “The thing I’m most proud of, every game in district we’ve come ready to play and had a good approach to the game all the way around. We’ve been excited to play every game.”With Pickens, Peacock has a reliable slugger that he can count on in all situations. Peacock said Pickens’ offense is a result of him adding to his game in the off-season.“The biggest thing I think for him off is his commit to hit the ball the other way,” Peacock said. “He’s always been a pretty good hitter but he made an effort to let the ball travel and hit it up the middle or the other way he became a more complete hitter.”Pickens’ effect on the team hasn’t just been on the offensive end. He’s also Summit’s ace pitcher, leading the Jaguars staff with four wins and second on the team with a 2.55 ERA.Peacock said Pickens has been as reliable as he could have hoped on the mound, where Pickens rarely beats himself. He’s walked just seven batters in 22 innings pitched.“He’s throwing strikes and pounding the strike zone,” Peacock said.
