Acadiana High Catcher Stryker Trahan Selected in First Round of MLB Draft

He had to wait more than two and a half hours to hear his name called by Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, but the wait was worth it for Acadiana High’s Stryker Trahan. The all-state catcher for the Wreckin’ Rams was selected with the 26th pick of the first round by the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Trahan, who has signed to play college ball with Ole Miss, will no doubt be headed to the minor leagues as soon as he signs a contract.

As a senior, Trahan batted .384 with 4 home runs, 22 RBIs, 10 doubles and 28 runs scored while playing outstanding defense behind the plate. His final high school campaign was capped by a trip to the state semi-finals and a spot on the state’s 5A All-State team.

Trahan is the fifth player from Lafayette Parish, the seventh in the Acadiana area and the third Acadiana High player to be drafted in the first round.

In 1996, Acadiana High’s Gil Meche was selected in the first round by the Seattle Mariners.

Congrats Stryker and good luck getting to the Major Leagues!
