Georgia’s John Michael Boswell Wins 8th Annual POWER SHOWCASE
John Michael Boswell couldn’t have envisioned it any better.The underclassman from Atlanta Georgia battled through two tiebreaker rounds to ultimately claim the world champion title in the eighth annual POWER SHOWCASE that concluded Sunday at Marlin Park in Miami. Boswell connected on shots that distanced 381 and 421 feet, and then watched as Canada’s Wylie Johnston managed just a 406-foot home run on his final turn. After the two finalists had tied for six apiece in the championship, then had both come up empty in the first tiebreaker, finally Boswell prevailed as the new world champion.

“It’s a dream where at first you almost think in your mind that there will be a tiebreaker and you will hit the home run. But to actually live it and experience it is so different,” Boswell said. “To actually accomplish something like this for the people back home is a dream come true. The first day I noticed I was the only underclassman from Georgia, and I wanted to do it for my hometown and for my state. The people back home have been so supportive; they all got together and were watching on the television. Everybody was sending me text messages and telling me I did a great job. They have been amazing.”

Boswell garnered a bevy of awards, winning the IMG Academies Underclassman award, the award for the most home runs in the underclassman preliminary round, the title for the most overall home runs, the most home runs with the wood bat and the most consecutive longballs with the wood bat.

“I was praying on a couple of them to get lucky,” Boswell admitted. “In this type of event, you’ve got one pitch in one spot and you’ve got to look for it.”

John Michael, even as a freshman, possessed natural leadership characteristics.  Because he led by example, whether during practice or games, he took over as a vocal leader by his sophomore year.  John Michael wears a blue collar, is as passionate a learner as a player, carries himself with confidence without an ounce of egotism, selfless yet personally demanding, and he defines the term teammate.  The same attributes make John Michael an important contributor to Paideia’s student body.  Whether honing his skills in the classroom or supporting his peers by attending the spring play, students and faculty alike respect him.  This kid will embody both aspects of being a student-athlete for your program.”  – Ryan Martin, Paideia School, Head Baseball Coach ’07-’13
