Clarksville, TN – Sophomore infielder Logan Gray, of the Austin Peay State University baseball team, has been named the Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week.
Gray homered four times last week, including three in back-to-back-to-back innings during Sunday’s Ohio Valley Conference series finale at Southeast Missouri, leading the Govs to a 2-2 record on the week. Overall, he hit .316 (6-for-19) with five runs scored and 11 RBI.
The Leawood, Kansas, native started his week with a 2-for-5 midweek outing at Middle Tennessee before homering again in the series opener against the Redhawks. He capped the weekend with Austin Peay’s first 3-home run, 7-RBI outing since 2006.
With just over 100 at-bats to his credit in 2015, Gray is tied with Garrett Copeland for the top batting average among Govs (.340) and leads the team with eight home runs (tied for second in the OVC), 11 doubles and 23 RBI.
