Two Paris area pitchers have been drafted into Major League Baseball teams.
Former North Lamar High School pitcher Kevin Dickey and former Paris High School pitcher Phillip Sikes, both named Co-MVPs three years ago, were drafted by MLB teams.
“We couldn’t be more proud of former North Lamar Panther and current Seminole State Trojan Kevin Dickey,” North Lamar Police Chief Mike Boaz said.
Kevin was drafted by the Houston Astros.
“We’re so happy and proud of Phillip and all he’s doing to represent us,” said head baseball coach, and uncle, Bill Sikes. “He’s done a good job on and off the field and we just couldn’t be happier for him and for Paris to have someone like him representing us.”
Phillip was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
