Louisiana Tech signees Jonathan Fincher, Steele Netterville of Byrd and Cameron Parikh of Airline, along with Benton’s Coleman Nerren, a UL Monroe signee, headline the recently announced 2017 Louisiana High School Coaches Association All-Star team selectees.

The quartet will compete for the West Team in the games that are slated for May 19-20 at North Park in Denham Springs.

Fincher, a 6-foot-1, 243-pound left-handed pitcher, and Netterville, a pitcher/third baseman, led the Jackets to a state runner-up finish in 2016.

“It feels awesome. I'm excited to be able to play with guys from past summer teams and play against some former teammates as well,” Fincher said. “I'm honored that I was selected and can't wait to represent Byrd and the entire city in the all-star game.”

Fincher was 6-2 with a 2.25 ERA and 88 strikeouts last spring, while Netterville hit .409 for coach Greg Williams.

“It's an absolute honor to be selected for the All-Star game and have the chance to represent Byrd,” Netterville said. “I just want to thank God, my family, my coaches and teammates for helping me reach this point. I look forward to competing the rest of this year with my team, and I look forward to the game, as well as college in the future.”
