Max Roland (2019 2B, Headland, AL) - Dothan Black 16U continues to seperate themselves as National Title contenders with many of their player's hitting for high averages. Max is one of the leaders of that team and he impressed again on Wednesday night. He went 11/17 (.647 AVG) with 9 RBI's in the two wins. Of his 11 hits, 5 of them went for extra bases. He also ranks in the top 10 in Max Velo (91.7 MPH) and AVG Velo (79.7).

Jake Killingsworth (2020 C, Headland, AL) - Jake has shown thus far why he is ranked #175 by Perfect Game in the class of 2020. He is the nation's leaders in Max Velo (97.7), AVG Velo (87.1), Farthest Hit Ball (376 FT), and hits (21). He continued to pad on his stats with a strong performance on Wednesday night. He went 11/17 (.647 AVG), 7 of those hits for extra bases while driving in 7 RBI's.

Andrew Tamburin (2020 SS, Dothan, AL) - Andrew and his Dothan Orange 16U are still looking for their first win on the season. Despite the team struggling, Andrew had success on Wednesday night finding gaps and picking up base hits. Andrew went 8-13 (.615) and had his hardest hit ball of the year, traveling in at 85.6 MPH.

Jaeden Jackson (2023 1B, Dothan, AL) - As a player playing up an age division, you would understand if Jaeden struggled a little bit getting acclimated to faster pitching. However, Jaeden has picked it up well and was a key reason why Dothan Red 16U was able to salvage a split on Wednesday night. In game 2, Jaeden went 4-8 (.500) with 3 RBI's and even recorded a ball hit at 90.1 Exit Velo. Jaeden is amongst the league's top 10 in many offensive catagories, which says a lot about a 13U player playing in the 16U division.
