CHICKASHA – Scoring five runs and batting seven runners in during a three-game series this week earned Jared Coon his second Sooner Athletic Conference Player of the Week honor.

Against Oklahoma Christian last week, Coon batted 0.667. He had eight hits, including a home run and two doubles.

Coon, who took over second base mid-season when Robert Summers was injured, leads the team in batting average at 0.472 for the season. He also leads the team in runs, hits, doubles, home runs and RBIs.

Coon started the season at left field. He has played and started in every game for the Drovers.

The junior from Shawnee is third in the NAIA in total doubles with 18 and fifth in batting average and total bases (108). He’s also ninth in total hits with 60 on the season.

This is Coon’s second SAC Player of the Week honor this season, having previously won the honor in early March.

Coon joined the Drovers this season from McNeese State University. He is a sociology major and is the son of Russ and Alana Coon.
