Valley Christian junior and Ahwatukee resident Jeff Paschke had a great year offensively for the Trojans.

By Darryl Webb

Jeff Paschke, an all state baseball player, and his family moved to Santa Barbara for his father’s work.

Paschke is one of the nation’s top recruits and was named the sophomore national player of the year two years ago by one publication.

He hit .481 last season with seven home runs and 40 RBIs after a monstrous sophomore year when he hit .620 with 17 home runs and 72 RBIs.

“Valley Chrisitan was great for us, but Jeff will get some great exposure in California,” his father said.
