While at Country Day, Alldred was named the Ohio Division IV State Player of the Year in 2015 in baseball in 2015. He also led the Country Day football team to back-to-back 10-0 seasons and two playoff appearances as the quarterback. In basketball, he led Country Day to the MVC championship and was named Player of the Year and first team all-city.

"Cam is one of the best athletes I've seen in my 20 years at Country Day. As a three-sport athlete, he shined in football, basketball, and baseball," said the associate athletic director, Greg Ross. "I am so proud of him and look forward to watching him pitch in the big leagues. He has earned this opportunity with hard work, persistence, and determination."
