The athletic Thuente burst on the scene last year with style by hitting . 422 with a team leading 46 hits. Thuente was a base-stealing threat as he swiped 11 bases and also drove in 20 runners. Thuente is an excellent defensive outfielder with outstanding range and his arm strength has improved. Offensively, Thuente’ mix of gap power and speed is a dangerous threat for the Indians, and the two-sport star should be one of the Foothill League’s most exciting players.
