Diamond Prospects Players of the week: 4/8 – 4/13

Each Monday during the High School season DP is going to announce a player, pitcher & team over the previous seven-day period. The selection process is based on players stats, observations/recommendations from our staff and prep coaches who weigh in with a nomination. This past week, dp was able to lay eyes on quite a few teams across our state mid-year. We look forward to bringing this to you every Monday as we highlight these prospects and a team that perform at a high level. As you know, these selections are never easy, but we will give it our best shot! Going forward, coaches who submit a viable candidate certainly helps! -Pitcher of the Week- Ian McCrary – 2025, DW Daniel, RHP, Uncommitted: This past week the Lions had a couple of huge region matchups versus one of the top ranked teams in 3A, the Crescent Tigers.
