In a league of his own, Lincoln Stephens from Pitkin High School has once again captured the spotlight, earning the prestigious GeauxPreps.com Baseball Player of the Week award, presented by Visit Lake Charles. This recognition is bestowed upon players who exhibit unparalleled excellence on the diamond, and Stephens’ recent performances have undoubtedly set him apart.

Just a few days removed from a stellar complete game shutout against Vinton where he struck out 13 batters and allowed only one hit, Stephens showcased his prowess once again, delivering yet another consecutive complete game shutout in a remarkable showdown against Anacoco. His masterful command of the mound held opponents at bay with just two hits surrendered, leaving them struggling to make contact.

Over the course of 14 innings, Stephens proved virtually untouchable, conceding a mere three hits while astonishingly striking out an impressive 25 batters. His dominance on the mound has not only solidified his position as a formidable force in high school baseball but has also captivated fans and scouts alike with his exceptional talent and unwavering determination.
