Staff Report

The Alabama Sports Writers Association released its all-state teams for 2024. Tallassee has a first-teamer.

Brue Milner was selected to the Class 5A squad as a designated hitter. He is Tallassee's first freshman to be a first-team selection.

Tallassee's last first-team choices came in 2017 when Dee Williams and Will Peters were first-team picks.

Milner had a team-leading .355 batting average. He was also tops on the team in hits (33), doubles (9), homeruns (7) and RBIs (44).

Milner now has nine career homeruns with three years of high school eligibility remaining. His father Brent leads the career homerun category at Tallassee with 29 from 1993-96.
