Conner Weigman (Texas Twelve Maroon)
Texas Twelve Maroon’s Conner Weigman has had himself one incredible summer as he adds another award to his trophy case.

📈The tools are off the chart. Peyton Stovall (@peytonstovall2) has been one of the most impressive players so far in the 2020 AABC #DonMattinglyWS. Through three games, the @fivestarpb SS is 8-11 with 2 2B, 4 RBI, 4R, SB. Plays hard and is fast on around the bases. Looks smooth up the middle showcasing a strong arm across the diamond while captaining the infield. MLB scouts continue to watch the LHH’s every AB and he delivers with nothing but hard hits. One of the toughest to get out at the plate. • 6-0, 185 lbs. • @5starnational • Haughton (LA) 2021 • @razorbackbsb commit #WPS #DudeAlert @fivetool_louisiana
Stat Line: 14-22, 2 2B, 2 HR, 9 RBI, 7R, BB, 2 HBP, SB
Most Valuable Pitcher Award
Luke Harrison (Texas Twelve Maroon)
Texas Twelve Maroon’s Luke Harrison turned out a dominant performance in the Championship Game of the AABC Don Mattingly World Series and took home the Most Valuable Pitcher award. The 2021 University of Texas commit from Lutheran South Academy (TX) featured a mid 80s fastball and put hitters away with a filthy breaking ball that just falls off the table. The LHP is especially deceptive as he works from a three-quarter arm slot and features a number of varying windups that mess with hitter’s timing. Harrison is a very crafty arm that will continue to dominate hitters with his pinpoint control.
.@TwelveBaseball LHP Luke Harrison (@luke_harrison18) had nasty stuff on display in the Championship Game of the 2020 @followaabc #DonMattinglyWS. Threw 5 one-hit innings w/ 4K getting 8 ground balls.
