Cam Opp

U.S. Military Academy
Left-Handed Pitcher


Cadet Camrin Opp excels across all pillars at the Academy and is recognized not only by his teammates but also the academy’s leadership for his accomplishments. Academically, Opp boasts a 3.578 grade-point average. For this feat, he dons the golden “wreath and star” on his military uniform for the Superintendent’s Award for Excellence to distinguish his top-5 percent ranking across all four pillars. He has earned dean’s list honors every semester he’s been enrolled, while also garnering the Distinguished Cadet Award, Master of the Sword Award and a German Proficiency Badge. Opp is the captain of the Fed Challenge Team as well, which is a Federal Reserve-sponsored collegiate competition. To go along with those academic honors, Opp has been named a two-time baseball Academic All-Patriot League Team member. Opp has lived in London for 12 years of his life and has seen his military training come full circle after playing a pivotal role in a Joint Military Training Operation with the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst.


Opp has been nominated for team captain to finish out his senior year.

Head Coach Jim Foster: “For the three years I have had the privilege of getting to know and coach Cam Opp. He is someone who has stood out as a tremendous person and team leader. He has turned himself into an elite college baseball player and has always been an extremely bright individual and great cadet-athlete. He is someone who is very committed to being the best he can be in all facets of cadet life. Cam is a two-time Academic All-Patriot League recipient and has worked hard to be primed for a solid senior season. To cap off his West Point career, Cam will graduate and serve in the highly-coveted Aviation branch. I think Cam has a very bright future and is an outstanding candidate for the Senior CLASS Award.”


Cadets partake in many events that involve the community and exemplify selfless service. Each year, the Army baseball team works with the local foodbank, reorganizing and restocking shelves. Opp and the team also work with the local schools, offering them guidance and mentorship when it comes to academics and baseball. In the West Point community, Opp and the team are part of the Adopt a Highway program in Highland Falls where they clean up trash along the roadside each year. He also is a point person for the team’s clinics and camps throughout the year.


Opp led the team in 2018 with 25 appearances on the mound. He registered a team-low 2.66 ERA to go along with his 5-2 record in 61.0 innings of work. Opp also recorded four saves, which was second-best on the team. The London, England, native posted 72 strikeouts during his junior campaign and closed out Army’s eighth Patriot League title recording the final two outs of the championship game against rival Navy. During Patriot League play Opp posted a 2.19 ERA in eight appearances, and opponents batted only .213 against the lefty. He was named to the All-Patriot League Second Team.
