Indians’ Wenger, Raiders’ Irvin slug their way to POW honors
After 27,301 votes were casted, it was Stephens County’s Eli Wenger (10,162) who had the most votes, earning POW honors. BLITZ then picked Habersham’s Peyton Irvin as Co-POW.
ELI WENGER – FAN VOTE
Eli Wenger and the Indians are in the midst of another tough playoff push. With his recent numbers in the past 3 games, it’s no wonder that Stephens County remains a lethal team.
The junior shortstop went 4-for-8 over a 3-game win streak, including a homerun, triple, and driving in 6 runs. This is Wenger’s first Player of the Week Award.
PEYTON IRVIN – BLITZ PICK
Peyton Irvin has done it again. The do-it-all Raider earns his second Player of the Week Award after having a tremendous 3-game stretch in which he hit a homer, drove in 5 runs, and hit .333.
Habersham (17-5; 5-2) is securing a playoff spot for the first time since 2006. Irvin has been very good this year. He also went 2-0 with a microscopic 0.70 ERA over the same 3-game stretch, which included a complete game win. He recorded 12 strikeouts in the process.
