CENTRAL ALABAMA SCOREBOARD OFFICE – The 2022 season is a memory and most of the accolades have been awarded. But one remains … our second Super 22 list. This list has been vetted, cussed over and fussed over and as a result, we are able to name a Large School Coach of the Year and a Small School Coach of the Year. This year, the decision has been made that (going forward) the student-athlete chosen No. 1 on the list will serve as the CAScoreboard Player of the Year.

With all that said: there were some amazing student-athletes to choose from and we thank all of the coaches for continuing to support us and taking the time to make the nominations. I’m sure most of you have started scanning down the page to see who’s ranked where so … let’s get to it.

Large School Coach of the Year (4A-7A): Chris Steiner | Brew Tech

Steiner was able to bring her wealth of knowledge and experience as a player and collegiate coach and build an already stout Brew Tech squad into a formidable group of Rams. In her first season, the Rams raced out to a 20-game unbeaten streak and a berth in the state tournament.

Small School Coach of the Year (AISA-3A): Holly Matson | Thorsby

Matson took the reins of a Rebels program, young and burgeoning, and turned it into a small-school power Oxford bound. She was named the 2A Coach of the Year by the state sportswriters as part of their annual All-State list.

Super 22

No. 1 | Player of the Year: Taniyah Brown – Brew Tech – Pitcher – Junior

Coach Speak (Chris Steiner): “T. Brown is a force to be reckoned with this season. She has broken every BrewTech record this season and has helped us achieve many historic milestones. She is a Straight-A Honor student with 28 ACT, and a 4.6 GPA.

She is a great kid who serves her school as an ambassador and active member of her church.

T Brown is the most humble, hardest working kid, and strives to be better in all that she does every day. She is a great person inside and out and understands what it means to work for your teammates and your program. She is one of the most gifted softball players in this state.

She is relentless in all she does, which shows in the classroom and on the field.”

With all that said – there are stats too. T. Brown led the state by throwing eight no-hitters and 33 wins throwing a ball that tops out at 66 mph. Opposing Batters were rendered useless as she rattled off 314 strikeouts, marking both a season and a personal high. When asked what opposing batting averages were the only stat we were given was “low” as she capped the year with a 1.6 ERA. But she wasn’t just aggressive inside the circle. Brown was just as formidable inside the batters’ box rattling off 16 home runs and 17 extra-base hits as part of the Brew Tech Bomb Squad.
