Farris’s 15 career high school homers have him in the St. Bonaventure High School record books with the most in school history. Baseball remained a spring sport for the infielder in high school.

Hellbusch led his school to a state championship appearance in his junior season where he hit .362 with nine home runs and 56 RBIs on the offensive side. In the same season, he went 9-0 with a 2.11 ERA as a pitcher. Hellbusch also received Oklahoma’s Ferguson Jenkins award, which recognizes the top five high school baseball players in the state.
