During our preseason workouts and our in-season competition, the Dawgs organization is always looking to acknowledge our players for acting or playing in a way that embodies our mission and core values.
One of the ways that we award our players for “Embracing the Standard” and exemplifying our vision for the development of outstanding players and young men is through our “Dawg of the Week” belt award. This award is intended to be awarded each week the team has tournaments and a regular basis through off-season activities.
The “Dawg of the Week” award is voted on by our coaches and our staff after consideration of the most recent tournament or off-season period.
To win the award, the player must “Embrace the Standard” by exhibiting the traits and values that are core to the Dawgs organization, including leadership, accountability, excellence determination and a winning attitude.

Tyler is another one of those quiet leaders by example on the Dawgs. Tyler is a very talented player and is a lock down stud on the mound, but best of all Tyler is a good teammate and very coachable. Great job, Tyler, we are so glad you are a Dawg!!
