Cameron Roth, Denbigh, Senior
Cameron Roth does two things really well -- pitching and hitting -- but he enjoys one more than the other.
"I like to be on the mound in the center of everything," Roth said. "I feel most confident on the mound."
Roth's confidence surged in 2007 when he went 9-2 with a 1.40 ERA as a pitcher in his senior season at Denbigh, leading the Patriots to a 23-3 record, the Eastern Region tournament championship and their first state tournament appearance since 1996.
At the plate, he hit .476 and drove in 33 runs, as Denbigh swept the Peninsula District regular season and tournament titles.
Roth has a knack for rising to the occasion. In Denbigh's 8-2 victory against Warwick in the PD tournament semifinals, he was 4-for-4 with five RBI, three doubles and a triple.
"When people are on base in scoring position, you always want to produce. The thing is, you can't go up there and question yourself too much," Roth said. "You just have to relax and have confidence in your ability to hit."
