While there were a lot of big stats and great nominees for the first PDQ Player of the Week, one stood out with not only great numbers but an fantastic story. 2019 Troy McPeak is still uncommitted, but that has not stopped him from getting off to a blazing hot start for Orangewood Christian. 

McPeak would bat .833 in his Orangewood's two wins in opening week. He tied for the lead in the state with 8 RBI's and would have five hits including a triple, grand slam and a stolen base. McPeak continues his hot start, going 3-4 with two RBIs on Monday. 

 

 

McPeak not only hit a grand slam in his opening game, but the ball was driven over a very special banner in the outfield at Orangewood. Troy lost his brother Conner to suicide last year and the home run was driven over a sign hanging in his honor. Troy and his family have been dedicated to honor Conner and continue to promote suicide awareness. When asked about what his goal was this 2019 season Troy said, "I play baseball with all of my heart to honor my brother Conner and help others with suicide awareness".

Scouting Report

01/13/18- Currently stands at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds with a strong frame. At the plate he starts from a slightly closed stance with a short stride and short swing through the zone with an uphill path. Shows some pull side pop and leverage, producing line drives into the right-center field gap during batting practice. Registered an exit velocity of 83 mph. From the outfield he surrounds the ball and fields it out in front and under control with accurate throws to the bag that topped out at 74 mph.

06/01/17 - Has a strong frame, with wide shoulders and a strong lower half. In the outfield he projects at the corner with strong, accurate throws. Also moves well at first, with quality footwork and good hands. The bat projects, has a somewhat short stride, but the path through the zone works and has power potential. He has loose wrists and a feel for the barrel, as he learns to get better use from the lower half the ball should start jumping off of the bat.
