Kevin Kopps, who starred on the diamond for George Ranch High School, recently completed a solid return season for the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Kopps, a right-handed pitcher, helped Arkansas to its second-straight College World Series berth after he missed the 2018 season due to arm surgery. This past season as a redshirt sophomore, Kopps made 30 appearances in relief and posted a 6-3 record, a 3.89 earned-run average and 52 strikeouts in 41⅔ innings.
Kopps made one appearance in the College World Series, allowing two earned runs and three hits while striking out three batters in 2⅓ innings against Texas Tech on June 17 in Omaha, Nebraska.
In his redshirt freshman season in 2017, Kopps had 22 appearances and was 3-1 with a 3.31 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 49 innings.
Kopps was twice selected for All-State honorable mention honors at George Ranch and recorded a 17-4 record with 172 strikeouts over his junior and senior seasons.
