Player of the Week nominations are submitted by High School coaches across North Carolina each week.  Along with the nominations, Prep Baseball Report is diving into box scores, talking to coaches and scouts, and attending as many games as possible.

For the week of April 17 - 23 several pitchers stood out, including five total no-hitters reported.  A couple of the no-hitters were team no-no's while one was of the three inning run rule variety.  Gavin Williams (RHP, Cape Fear HS, 2017) fired his no-no vs. Scotland County in the championship game of their spring break tournament.  Williams, coming off minor near surgery in March, is still working into complete game shape, but stuff did not disappoint on this night.
