The left hander from Utah had a stand out senior season on both sides of the ball, but was dominant on the mound. Jayden was 9-0 in his senior year, throwing 64.2 innings and compiling 98 strikeouts and a school record 0.65 ERA. DCC Baseball Coach Chris Lewis commented, “Those strikeouts stats show his ability to put guys away at the plate and that is something that is hard to teach. We finished 11th in the country last season in team ERA, but we really wanted to find some front line arms that could put hitters away and we found that in Jayden.”
On the offensive side of the ball, Mayne batted .414 with 25 RBI and 2 HR’s. Coach Lewis added, “He is just a good baseball player, period. Although his future in college is most likely on the mound, he may see some time in the OF this fall if that is what he chooses.” For his successful senior season, Jayden was named 2A Region 15 pitcher of the year, 1st Team All-State and was the starting pitcher in the 2A All-Star game.
Coach Lewis concluded, “We are really excited to be able to add another lefty of this quality, doubled up with Hunter Brill, we feel really good about our left handed pitching. They have a shot to be a pretty good 1-2 punch. Jayden is an outstanding baseball player but what really sealed it for us, is who he is as a young man. He is very mature, has great integrity, is well spoken and will definitely fit right into the culture we are working to establish.”
