Seward County redshirt freshman catcher Brent Williams is off to a historic start to his Saints career and this week helped write another chapter in that legacy as Tuesday it was announced that Williams was named the KJCCC Player of the Week for the period of March 24-March 30.
If you look up the definition for 'red hot' in the dictionary, a picture of Williams will show up next to it. Williams was on fire for the Saints this week, hitting .737 with 8 doubles, a triple, a home run, and 13 RBI's in five Seward games. Even better than that, Williams also walked at least once in every game, giving him an .808 on base percentage for the five games. Wednesday against Clarendon he was 3 for 4 with 3 RBI's, missing the cycle by just a home run in a 25-20 Seward loss. Saturday in game one of the Saints series with Pratt he was 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored in an 8-4 Seward win and in game two of the double header he was 3 for 3 with 3 doubles, and also drove in 4 runs in a 19-5 Saints romp over the Beavers. Sunday he didn't slow down, doing 2 for 4 with 2 doubles and 2 runs scored in game three with Pratt and he finished the series with a 4 for 5 game where he doubled twice more and also hit a home run and drove in 6.
Following a weekend sweep over Pratt Saturday and Sunday, Williams and the Saints are now 22-16 on the year and 12-8 in Jayhawk West play as their bye week hits. Seward will take on Frank Phillips in non-conference action Wednesday and will have six days off before meeting the Plainsmen again in Liberal on April 8th.
