McALESTER, Okla. — The pipeline from his high school program to Rocky Top flows deep.
With Pence's help, Farragut High won the 2014 TSSAA Class AAA state championship before finishing runner-up this spring. That's the same program that produced the Vols' current middle infield of Nick Senzel and A.J. Simcox.
In 2014, the shortstop guided the Admirals' offense by batting .377 with nine home runs, 38 runs batted in, 17 doubles and 46 runs.
Pence returned to Oklahoma to compete for Team Tennessee in the Junior Sunbelt Classic. See what the future Vols infielder told InsideTennessee by clicking play on the video below:
