01/15/2016 - Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Dawson continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities with a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he has improved the most. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and work to and through an aggressive swing path, creating extension. He has loose levers and strength in his swing with baseball exploding off the bat when centered. He works to stay inside the ball and has hidden pop to all fields. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Hands are soft / clean and presents well out front. With 3 years to further develop, Dawson has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches.
