When you think about a leader you think of Gary! Gary works hard and play harder. Back in 2012 Gary was a senior on the state Championship Baseball team at Oxford and he along with 8 other seniors led the team in a way only coaches could dream of!

The consistency of his leadership led the team to championship and 9 of them signing pro and college ball! Gary has face many obstacles and it’s only a short amount of time obefore he is getting paid big league pay

I had the opportunity to coach Gary Mason Jr. for one year, but be around him for a couple more. You will not find anyone that will out work or out hustle Gary. What you see with Gary is what you get. He will never change. Gary is the definition of a true leader and will be an asset to any team he is on. If you want a player/man that will be the face of your program you want Gary. His playing ability speaks for itself, he is an athlete. Great speed, lots of power. I would take Gary any day.
