Bryson Dansberry and Zac Morris enjoyed their time in Lynchburg last week as they competed in the Virginia Commonwealth Games at Liberty University.

The Virginia Commonwealth Games brought together some of the most talented baseball players in the state of Virginia. Over the course of the weekend, players got to work out in front of different scouts and college coaches.

Morris and Dansberry, Nansemond-Suffolk Academy and Nansemond River High School students, respectively, were both on the East team roster.

The duo played four games, unfortunately going 1-3 overall. They only had one complete practice together; however, both Suffolk natives felt good about what they were able to do.

“We played well having never played a game together,” Dansberry said. “All around we did some good things. It was a good weekend overall and a great environment to be a part of good competition playing the best in the state.”

The players couldn’t actually speak to scouts and coaches, but Dansberry was able to hear that some had contacted his coaching staff at Nansemond River.

“I adjusted pretty quick after the first day, and I started to feel more comfortable out there after my nerves settled,” Dansberry said. “I enjoyed it all.”

Morris, who is committed to the Virginia Military Institute, had a good feeling about what he did after the weekend was up.

“It was a privilege to compete against some of the best in the state,” Morris said. “I felt like I played pretty well. I enjoyed meeting some new teammates and playing the game that I love.”

Morris is currently getting ready for his senior year at Nansemond-Suffolk, and will Dansberry will be a junior at Nansemond River.
