PBR Kentucky Player of The Week: Estill County 1B/RHP Thomas Forehand


Chris Fuller
KY Executive Director

forehandWith all teams in full swing the last week of March, the time has come to select our first Player of The Week for games played March 26-April 1.

There were many worthy nominees for this week's award, but as we combed through the stats, one player really stood out as he dominated on both sides of the ball.

Estill County 2023 1B/RHP Thomas Forehand put on a show as he led the Engineers to three wins last week. Offensively, Forehand went 15-for-19 with two doubles, a home run, and 10 RBI. As if that weren't enough, Forehand also picked up a win on the mound, firing a 7-inning complete game while allowing just two hits and one run with seven strikeouts.

For his outstanding performance on the field, Pikeville commit Thomas Forehand has been selected as last week's PBR Kentucky Player of The Week.
