Kale Fountain 3B / RHP / Norris, NE / 2024

Big week for Nebraska's no. 1 in the class of 2024:

6-for-9 with two home runs, a double, four runs driven in, and six bases stolen.

He's also the Class B leader in RBI with 137 following this tasty tater: 

Bryce Fountain 1B / Norris, NE / 2026

Not to be completely upstaged by his big brother, Bryce added a solid week of his own, going 6-for-8 with a grand slam and 10 runs driven in. 


Colin Nowaczyk LHP / OF / Elkhorn North , NE / 2024

The #PBRFG22 alum went seven innings while whiffing 11.


Kale Koch 3B / RHP / Beatrice, NE / 2025

On the mound, Koch tossed a one-hitter over six innings, striking out seven and walking none against a good Plattesmouth lineup.  



Tanner Foertsch RHP / Elkhorn South , NE / 2024

Last week's Pitcher of the Week winner, Foertsch followed that performance up with another doozy: 15 strikeouts in a complete game win over Omaha Westside.

Ryan Ellison 3B / RHP / Elkhorn , NE / 2024

The uncommitted Ellison had a seven inning, 11 strikeout performance against Bennington.



Easton Elam SS / RHP / Omaha Skutt Catholic, NE / 2027

The Junior Future Games alum had the win over no. 6 ranked Gross Catholic, throwing six innings with eight strikeouts.  



Kegan Brand / Kearney West, NE / 2024

"Kegan helped us out in all three phases this week and helped us finish with a 4-1 week. At the plate he hit .272 with 4 RBI including a 3B. In the field he had an OF assist double play in the biggest moment of our Norfolk game. But by far the highlight of his week and our week was his performance in our upset of our rivals Grand Island. Up two runs with no outs, runners on 2nd and 3rd and 3-4-5 coming up for Grand Island Kegan came in out of the pen and had an immaculate inning, striking out the heart of the Grand Island order on 9 pitches. He finished the two inning save the next inning by striking out the side again. 2 inning save with 6 K's."



Kaleb Ledgerwood / NA, NE / 2024

"Kaleb Ledgerwood (sophomore) pitched a complete game shutout on Monday, April 1st against Ralston. Kaleb threw 6 innings of 2 hit ball while striking out 9. This is the third quality start by Kaleb this season."



Brady Brown OF / C / Blair, NE / 2024

The 2022 Future Games alum went 8-for-14 on the week with five runs driven in and scored another eight on his own, leading Blair to a 4-win week.



Michael Wheelock RHP / 3B / Creighton Prep, NE / 2024

An impressive week with not one but two grand slams. Wheelock hit five home runs over Creighton Prep's last four games.  


+ S'marious Henderson | Omaha North 

Went 6-for-14 with three doubles, a triple, and seven runs driven in.
