The USAO Drovers just recently picked up two transfers from the University Of Oklahoma. The Drovers will be getting Chickasha native Brock Henderson and Brett Lorah from Oklahoma. Henderson is a threat on both sides of the ball, as he has a flashy glove and a quality bat. Lorah is a weapon on the mound, where he is sitting around 88-92 mph and counters that with a 83-86 mph slider. Heading into the 2019 season, Henderson and Lorah should play a big role if the Drovers want to reach the goal of the college world series.
Henderson is a 6’1 185 lbs middle infielder and could also see time on the mound for the Drovers. While at Chickasha High School, Henderson was a two-times letterwinner. During his Senior year at Chickasha, Henderson hit .459 with 42 runs scored. Henderson also finished his Senior year with 92 strikeouts on the mound for Chickasha. Henderson was selected as the 2017 Rawlings perfect game all-american honorable mention. In the summer of 2017 Henderson played for the Seacoast Mavericks of the New England Collegiate Baseball League and in that league, he hit .242 with 1 home run and 8 RBI’s. Henderson was red-shirted last for the Sooners, so he will be coming to USAO as a redshirt Freshman.
Lorah is a 6’0 185 lbs right-handed pitcher from Elgin, Oklahoma. After his Senior year in High School, Lorah earned four varsity letters and was named to the OCA all-star large west in 2015. Lorah spent his Freshman and Sophomore years of college, at the Seminole State Junior College. During his Freshman year, he had a 1.69 ERA with a 1-0 record. In 42.2 innings, he would strikeout 48 and finish with 1 save. During his Sophomore, he posted a 3.20 ERA with a 5-1 record. He also recorded 61 strikeouts over 45 innings pitched and finished with 6 saves. Lorah held opponents to a .227 batting average, during his Sophomore. Last season Lorah appeared in 3 games for the Sooners and tallied 2 innings.
Brett Lorah Said ““Coming from a small town and seeing the success USAO baseball has had over the years just makes me think it’s the right place for me”
