Cameron Hoch has enjoyed absolutely marvelous athletic and academic careers. Recently his accomplishments on the playing fields and in the class room were feted with the C.S. Pop Kelchner award as the top local male student-athlete, by the Central Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame.
Hoch, a member of the Annville American Legion Baseball Club, won it for his grades and work in football, basketball, baseball and track and field at Annville-Cleona High School. Hoch was also honored as the Lancaster-Lebanon League Section Three football player-of-the-year for leading the Little Dutchmen to a share of the section championship this fall.
In the spring, Hoch helped Annville-Cleona to the L-L League and District Three Class AAA postseasons in baseball, while also competing in the javelin. Hoch has committed to continue his athletic and academic careers as a football player for Division Two Shippensburg University.
From his lead-off spot, Hoch, a strong defensive outfielder, has been a catalyst for Annville during its summer-long quest for a second straight Lebanon County American Legion Baseball League championship.
