Two Eagles Landing in Waynesboro
A couple Eagles from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will look to pace the offense for the Generals this summer. The duo of Luis Olivier and Kyle Guttveg will make their way up the east coast from their school in Daytona Beach, Florida. ERAU competes in the Sunshine State Conference and the Eagles currently sit in 4th with two remaining conference series.
Luis Olivier – Catcher
Luis is the son of Roxana and Luis Oliver. The junior is listed at 6’0 220 pounds out of the hometown of Altamonte Springs, Florida. Luis came to Embry-Riddle from Lake Brantley High School. He wasted no time making an impact for the Eagles, as he set a school record for home runs by a freshman with five. In his sophomore year, Luis continued his power display with 13 long balls. This year Luis has hit seven with six regular season games remaining on the schedule. He’ll look to inject some pop into a Generals lineup that finished 8th out of 11 teams in home runs last year. But Luis is more than just a power hitter. He also owns a .334 career batting average, can handle a pitching staff, and slow down the opponent’s running game. Welcome to Waynesboro, Luis Olivier!
Kyle Guttveg – Outfielder
Kyle is the son of Kelly and Gary Guttveg of Palm City, Florida. The Jensen Beach High School grad is 5’10 180 pounds. Kyle is currently in his redshirt-junior campaign at ERAU. After redshirting his freshman year, he started to etch his name into Embry-Riddle history books. He has never hit below .314 for the Eagles in his already decorated career. After a stellar sophomore season where he hit .361 with 14 doubles, seven homers, 23 stolen bases, and a team-high .453 on-base percentage, he was named first team All-SSC and National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) All-Region 2nd team. He earned the same NCBWA All-Region 2nd team honors in the preseason of this year. To this point in the season, Kyle is hitting .316 with 12 doubles and three homers. He also brings a rocket of an arm that opposing runners won’t want to test. He owns the record for outfield assists in a season with eight back in his freshman year. He has seven with 6 games remaining in the regular season. Kyle will be a fun player to watch in Waynesboro this summer!
