Prep Baseball Louisiana: Diamond Notes (Week 8)

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

The Prep Baseball Louisiana Diamond Notes serves as an opportunity for our staff to highlight players, from across the state, that put up impressive performances on a given week, yet fell short of our Mizuno Player & Pitcher of the Week honors. 

NOTE: These submissions were provided from high school coaches from around the state.  If you are a coach and are interested in submitting a player for our weekly Player of the Week awards, please contact State Director Alex Armand at [email protected].  Our Diamond Notes will be released each Wednesday throughout the high school spring season.


Player of the Week

Rowen Bergeron INF / Opelousas Catholic, LA / 2025

We were definitely bullish on Bergeron heading into the spring, after seeing him at our State Games this past fall, and he was impressive last week at the plate for the Vikings.  The uncommitted junior infielder went 6-12 (.500) with 2 HR, 1 2B, 10 RBI, 7 R, and 2 BB in Opelousas Catholic's four wins last week over Westminster Academy, St. Edmund's, Tioga, and Ponchatoula.  His two biggest performances came against Westminster Academy last Monday, where he went 2-3 with a HR, 3 RBI, and 3 R, and against Tioga last Friday, where he went 3-5 with a HR, 5 RBI, and 3 R.   


Pitcher of the Week

William Schmidt RHP / Catholic BR, LA / 2024

Catholic BR currently holds the #2 spot in our 2024 National High School Team Rankings, and Schmidt has been a big reason for the Bears success this season.  Last Thursday, a plethora of MLB scouts, including a couple of MLB General Managers showed up to see the state's #1 player against Zachary, and he delivered arguably his best outing of the season.  The LSU recruit was dominant from his first pitch to his last pitch, as he tossed a complete game no-hitter (84 pitches | 59 strikes | 25 balls) with only 1 BB and 14 K's, as the Bears beat the Broncos, by a score of 10-0, in 6 innings, to move their season record to 30-2.  Schmidt now owns a 7-0 record and 0.49 ERA with 69 K's to 14 BB's across 42 2/3 IP. 


Other Notable Performances

Cooper Winchester C / St. Paul's, LA / 2024

The former Future Gamer and Air Force recruit had another good week at the plate for the Wolves.  For the week, Winchester went 5-9 (.556) with 1 HR, 3 2B, and 5 RBI's.  

Easton Sanders 1B / RHP / Glenbrook, LA / 2025

The Louisiana Tech recruit continued to shine as a two-way for the Apaches last week.  In an 11-1 win over Oak Grove last Friday, Sanders tossed 5 innings of no-hit baseball with 0 BB and 8 K's, while also going 2-2 at the plate with a HR and 3 RBI's.
