PBR Louisiana Player & Pitcher of the Week (Week 9)

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

The final week of the regular season, Week 9 of the Louisiana High School Baseball Season, is now complete.  Familiar faces continued to shine and newcomers also began to make a name for themselves.  Below, we highlight our Mizuno Baseball Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week from week nine of the season (04/18/22-04/24/22).

We will follow up later this week with our 9th week edition of "Diamond Notes", where we take a look at some of the other top performances from around the state. Please note, that all of the below performances are submitted by high school coaches.  To submit your player(s) for next week's edition of Diamond Notes, please email Alex Armand ([email protected]) with the player's name, class, position, and any relevant statistics from the week.  We are fired up for what's in store for all of the teams that have entered into the playoffs!




Player of the Week

-2022 Cameron Andrus (Carencro H.S.)

Carencro went 3-1 in the final week of the regular season, with their only loss being a 1-0 game against the top ranked Class 4A team in North Vermillion.  Andrus led the Bears offensive attack by collecting six hits in thirteen at-bats (.462 AVG), that included one double, one homerun, eleven runs batted in, and four stolen bases.  In a thrilling 14-13 win against Erath, Andrus hit a walk-off double to seal the win for the Bears.


Pitcher of the Week

-2024 Jace Duhon (South Beauregard H.S.)

Duhon was an interesting 6'2" pitching prospect at our Southwest Louisiana Preseason ID in January, and the uncommitted right-handed pitcher has enjoyed a successful sophomore campaign for the Golden Knights.  Last week, Duhon threw a complete game no-hitter, with one walk and eight strikeouts, against Hornbeck, as South Beauregard won 10-0.  For the year, Duhon has compiled a 6-3 record with one save and has allowed only fifteen earned runs across sixty seven innings pitched, to go along with fifty three strikeouts.
