Jordon Banfield
Arizona Scouting Director

In our weekly Diamond Notes column PBR AZ will feature players who had exceptional performances on the field and were nominated by their coaches for our Player of the Week honor. Coaches, please continue to submit your nominations every Sunday evening via email so your players can be considered and tune in every Tuesday and Wednesday so see who won the award and other top performers. As always, contact [email protected] or direct message @PBRArizona on Twitter with any questions about Prep Baseball Report and/or commitment information.
