O’Dea’s Josh Dickerson, who played most of this season despite an aggressive, cancerous tumor in his jaw, was named by Most Inspirational Player by Metro League baseball coaches.

Dickerson, a 17-year-old shortstop, was also named to the All-Metro first-team infield. He went 3 for 5 in his final game for O’Dea on May 2 before beginning radiation treatments.

Fulfilling his wishes, he kept playing this season even after tumors spread to his lungs.

Dickerson’s Irish teammates begin state-playoff action in the Class 3A regionals in Centralia on Saturday.
