HUNTER TATUM (FAN VOTE)
Habersham has a new star. Freshman southpaw Hunter Tatum earned a win last week across three appearances. He pitched 9.2 innings, and didn’t allow an earned run. He struck out five in the process, earning his first Player of the Week award.

JACKSON PERRY (BLITZ PICK)
A no-hitter is an extremely rare feat…doing it in relief…that’s about unheard of. Jackson Perry was called into action in the first inning against Stephens County, and delivered a sensational performance on the bump. The senior surrendered no hits and struck out 9 in the win, a 5-0 victory for the Dragons. Starting pitcher JJ Rapp had an injury that pulled him from the game just a handful of pitches in. Perry earns his first POW award.
