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.

Brody's Bat and Stellar Defense Drives the Dawgs to the Championship!
For the weekend, Brody was awarded the “Dawgs of the Week” belt as he fought off a tough time the previous weekend to bounce back in a big way in the filed and at the plate. Brody’s great defense led to two signature defensive plays in a tightly contested semi-final game.
In that game, Brody made a great play at 2B with the infield in to get off a quick throw to gun down the tying run at home to preserve the Dawgs lead and then turning an athletic double play in the last inning to seal the win.
Brody’s glove wasn’t the only thing on display, as he went 5 for 10 on the weekend while smashing a double in the championship game. The Dawgs wound up losing a tight game in the finals, but again learned some lessons which would let bounce back to beat the same team a few weeks later to capture a championship in their last tournament of the spring/summer season.
