Mountain View’s Allred Will Continue His Baseball Career at Jamestown
Mountain View High School senior and Evanston Outlaws player Gus Allred has signed to play college baseball at the University of Jamestown in North Dakota.
Allred didn’t let the simple that there’s no high school baseball in Wyoming stop him from pursuing his dream. He has been part of the Evanston Legion baseball program since he was 13 years old. The last three Allred has played at the ‘AA’ level with the Outlaws.
In the 2020 season, Allred threw 62.1 innings with a 2.90 earned run average. He had 78 strikeouts and allowed only 38 walks. Opponents hit just .240 off of him.
At the plate, Allred had a .396 batting average with 54 total hits. His on-base percentage was .479, while his slugging percentage was .526. Allred scored 34 runs last season with 20 walks and just 11 strikeouts.
Allred said in a release to the media, “I’ve had the time of my life playing with the Outlaws, and I am thankful for the opportunity to play one final season with the boys. This year will be very special for me because my brother, Hank, will be catching for me for the first time since little league, and we will be able to play together for my last season. Saying goodbye to the organization and my legion ball days will be incredibly difficult, but I am honored and thrilled to start my collegiate career at the University of Jamestown!”
Allred has also basketball for four years and football for two years at Mountain View High School. He was part of this year’s 3A boys’ runner-up team for the Buffalos.
The senior also expressed gratitude towards several people in both Mountain View and Evanston.
Allred said, “Thank you to James Rogers, Justin Sweep, Jason Palmer, Dustin Rees, Daryl Fisher, Chad Thompson, Jason Mitchell, Jason Lloyd, Todd Hoover, Steve Moyles, my uncle Judd Kishpaugh, my dad, and all others who helped coach me throughout my baseball career and have been outstanding people in my life. I’d also like to thank all the boys of the Evanston Outlaws for being the best teammates and brothers anyone could ask for.”
The University of Jamestown Jimmies competes in the Great Plains Athletic Conference as a member of the NAIA level of collegiate athletics. The head coach of the Jimmies baseball program is Tom Hager. Jamestown is 14-10 overall and 1-3 in conference play during their current 2021 season.
