Teammates, opponents and scouts aren't the only ones who were impressed by Wilmington pitcher Jack Gillis' performance in 2014.

ESPN Boston released its all-state baseball team earlier this week, and Gillis was in elite company as he was listed on "The Super Team" portion of the squad.

Gillis joined St. John's Prep's Evan Roberts, Bridgewater-Raynham's Jack Connolly, Case's Zach Correll, and St. John's Shrewsbury pitcher Shane Combs as the best pitchers in the state, as chosen by ESPN Boston.

Wilmington's ace has received heavy interest from Division 1 college programs already, despite being just a sophomore. Among those who have already scouted him are LSU, North Carolina, Duke, and Vanderbilt, which just polished off a national championship win on Wednesday night.

"One of New England's top 2016 pitching prospects, Gillis recorded two no-hitters this season and was named MVP of the Middlesex League's Freedom Division," ESPN Boston wrote in its all-state article. "He went 7-2 with 102 strikeouts in 57.1 innings, holding opponents to a .117 batting average."
