Congratulations to Aziah Murphy, named the Academy Sports Spotlight Player of the Week for week 3 in March.
Murphy plays for Coach Gary Head in the 12U Auburn Division. Last weekend, Aziah was on fire at the plater - batting .800 for the tournament, including 3 Doubles and 2 Home Runs.
Aziah Murphy is an 5th grader at Sanford Middle School in Beauregard, Alabama. Primarily a First Baseman, he is a big fan of the New York Yankees. As for the keys for his success at the plate - he always gives 100%, stays focused on his game, and lots of tee work with his coaches.
Each week during the Spring and Summer seasons Academy Sports + Outdoors presents the Spotlight Player, as voted by SBG Sox coaches and administrators. The nominations are from all age teams in all youth age groups playing that weekend, and are based on the performance of that tournament. Each weekly selection will receive a $20 Gift Card from Academy Sports, good at any location.
At the conclusion of each month, a Spotlight Player of the Month will be selected and recognized for his overall performance for the month. The monthly selection will receive a $50 Gift Card from Academy Sports + Outdoors
