Habersham’s King, Jefferson’s Watkins earn POW honors
After 23,252 votes were casted, it was Habersham Central’s Christian King (10,640) who had the most votes, earning POW honors. BLITZ then picked Jefferson’s Lane Watkins Co-POW.
CHRISTIAN KING – FAN VOTE
Christian King has hit a new level for the Raiders. He has been a key part of the team’s success over the past three seasons, especially in 2019. In recent action, King hit .444 in a three-game stretch, driving in 5 runs and scoring 2. He added 2 stolen bases, and has been flawless (no errors) from behind the plate. This is King’s first Player of the Week award, but likely not his last.
LANE WATKINS – BLITZ PICK
Lane Watkins is once again a Player of the Week. After a three-game stretch last week, Watkins hit .700 with a homer, 9 RBI, and got it done on the mound with a win as well.
The Dragons are still perfect – 14-0 overall as the #1 team in the state and a flawless 7-0 in region play. Watkins is now a two-time winner of the award, and has signed to play college ball at UGA next year.
