  • Cameron Dawson: Sportsman for all seasons

    Whether playing baseball, basketball, or golf, LaRue County High School sophomore Cameron Dawson loves competition.

    “This year’s team is why I love baseball,” he said. “We are young and all are competitors.”

    Dawson, 16, has pitched from his days in wiener league to the high school mound.

    On the Hawks’ varsity roster since he was in the eighth grade, Dawson found that competing against older players helped him with command and control on the mound and with his self-confidence.
