Madison Central's Ben Snapp was named to the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association All-State Team earlier this week.

The catcher/designated hitter earned second-team honors following an outstanding senior season.

Snapp led the Indians in almost every offensive category.

The senior hit .404 with 12 doubles, two triples, six home runs, 29 RBI and had 16 stolen bases. He had a .468 on-base percentage, a 1.184 OPS and a .716 slugging percentage.

Snapp recently signed to play baseball at Eastern Illinois University.

The catcher helped Central (27-10) win a second-straight 44th District championship and advance to the semifinals of the 11th Region Tournament.

In a loss to Tates Creek in the 11th Region semifinals, Snapp had a two-run home run in the fifth inning that got the Indians back in the game.

Snapp had four homers in the final eight games of the season -- Bishop Brossart, Sayre, North Oldham and Tates Creek.

A.J. Hacker of Rowan County was named Mr. Baseball by the KHSBCA.

Other players from the 11th Region to earn all-state honors included: Scott County's Trace Willhoite (first team), Tates Creek's Konner Lewis (first team), Tates Creek's Blayne Deaton (second team), Charlie Corum of Woodford County (second-team), Jared Gadd of Dunbar (third team), Scott County's Cade McKee (third team) and Cam Baughman of Dunbar (honorable mention).
