Branden Cogswell was named to the American Baseball Coaches Association's High School Region I team, which includes all of New York State and the six states in New England.

Here was Cogswell's high school stat line for the 2010 season:
POS., NAME, CLASS, SCHOOL, AB, R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, BA, SB
ss, Branden Cogswell, Jr., Shenendehowa, 66, 35, 28, 7, 0, 3, 27, .424, 3

He also drew 22 walks as opposing teams pitched around him.

He is drawing interest from ACC and Big East coaches and could be one of the area's next major league draft picks in 2011 unless he makes it clear that he plans to play in college.

Also, a trio of Section II coaches were named Region I coaches of the year.

Large schools: Doug LaValley, Guilderland.

Medium schools: Alphonse Lambert, Saratoga Central Catholic.

Small schools: Craig Phillips, Fort Plain. (Phillips was also selected in 2008. He is up for the national Small School Coach of the Year award, which will be voted upon during the College World Series).

The ABCA has 8,000 high school and college coaches in its ranks, but only 100 are from the northeast.
