Noble and Greenough School baseball coach Rob Murray saw something special in Peyton Rose early in his Bulldogs career.
Rose entered the Dedham, Mass., school as a true freshman four years ago, coming over from The Fessenden School (West Newton, Mass.), where he had spent his entire academic life. What Murray quickly noticed in Rose was a tall, lanky right-handed pitcher with boundless potential.
"With his ability to throw, Peyton found himself on the varsity baseball team as a freshman,'' said Murray. "He didn't get a lot of innings that year due to a very strong and deep pitching staff, but it was a great learning year for him. You could tell early on he was going to be a guy for us in a couple of years.''
Rose lost out on his sophomore year due to the COVID shutdown. That summer, Rose returned to action, playing for the Nokona Chiefs. There, he started to flourish.
