After going the junior college route out of high school, Dawson County alumni and former North Georgia Baseball Player of the Year Palmer Sapp has committed to continue his collegiate career at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville.
Sapp played for Georgia Highlands College in 2020 where he was a member of the All-Conference team as a shortstop and was ranked as one of the top 150 junior college prospects.
For the Chargers, Sapp’s batting average was .402 with six home runs, 52 runs batted in and 47 runs scored. Sapp spent one year at North Greenville directly out of high school before transferring to Georgia Highlands.
In high school, Sapp capped off his senior season with the Tigers by winning the 2018 North Georgia Player of the Year after posting a .460 batting average with five home runs and 31 runs batted in. His junior year was almost an exact replica, batting .444 with five home runs and 29 runs batted in.
Sapp’s father is Dawson County baseball head coach, Dwayne Sapp and his brother, Hudson Sapp, plays baseball at Ole Miss University.
