Prep Baseball Report

Colorado Player & Pitcher of Week 6

Caleb Dameron
Prep Baseball Colorado Staff

Each week during the high school season, the Prep Baseball Colorado staff will announce our 'Player(s) of the Week' awards for that particular week. Numerous players from across the state will continue to perform and put up numbers weekly, though only a select few can earn Player or Pitcher of the Week honors when compared on a weekly basis. Below you'll see which players have earned our 'Player of the Week' honor this spring season. We will also highlight those that fell short in our weekly 'Diamond Notes' article, where you can learn more about the standout names across the Colorado baseball landscape.

 NOTE: These submissions were provided from our social media direct messages along with our scouting staff's research. If you would like to submit a potential player of the week, be sure to message us on either Twitter (@pbrcolorado) or Instagram (@prepbaseballco)


Ben Knox OF / LHP / Castle View, CO / 2024

The Castle View two sport athlete had himself quite the week producing 3 home runs, a double, 7 RBI, 7 runs, and going 7 for 10 overall. The senior belted a three home run game early in the week against Highlands Ranch and finished the matchup 5 for 5 as well. Knox is an intriguing senior who is now hitting .562 with 4 home runs, 3 triples, 4 doubles, and a 1.665 OPS across 59 plate appearances this spring. Castle View has one of the deepest lineups in the state at the moment, and Knox has been a big part of their production. 




Easton Miller RHP / OF / Fossil Ridge, CO / 2024

Miller earns his second 'Pitcher of the Week' award this spring thanks to yet another dominating outing. The senior chucked a complete game against Fort Collins with 11 strikeouts, just one hit allowed, one run allowed, and walking two. Miller is headed to Air Force for college baseball after this spring, but is building plenty of momentum still in 2024 with a fastball up to 92 mph and a deceptive slider. The full season stat line on Miller is now at 28 innings pitched with 58 Ks, and a 1.01 ERA at the 5A level.
