Mizuno Player and Pitcher of the Week: Week 3

Colton Provey
PBR Tennnessee Scouting Director

Each week during the high school season, we will be announcing the Mizuno Pitcher and Player of the Week for that particular week. Numerous players across the state  put up impressive numbers both as position players and pitchers on the mound. This year we will be selecting one Pitcher of the Week and one Player of the Week based on nominations from high school coaches across the state. Thanks to Mizuno for sponsoring both awards this season. 

Thanks to the many high school coaches that sent in nominations this week.  

New this year will be our Tennessee Diamond Notes that we will release each Tuesday. Our Diamond Notes will highlight other players nominated by high school coaches that are deserving of recognition that were not named Mizuno Pitcher or Player of the Week. Look for that tomorrow. 

Let's take a look at the Mizuno Player and Pitcher of the Week for Week 3:



Sam Ritz OF / C / Dobyns Bennett , TN / 2022

The Roane State CC commit had a monster week at the plate, earning him Player of the Week Honors.

A.J. Armstrong SS / RHP / Cannon County, TN / 2024
