Josh Kuykendall
West Virginia Director of Scouting

This fall, we will be taking a closer look at players from all across the Mountain State. Today, we look at Peyton Weekly, a 2019 C/3B from Cabell Midland HS.

Kuykendall on Weekly: "Peyton is a really solid player. He is a good defender and can swing the bat with some pop. That, along with him being an excellent student, makes him a no-brainer for a school at the next level"
