Williams slugs way to APC’s Most Valuable


Weatherford Democrat

— By GREG WEBB

About the only negative you could conger from the season Roos Dustin Williams had was that the senior first baseman did not get to finish it. Helping Weatherford get back to yet another postseason, a clock-work occurrence for the Kangaroos after district baseball is done, Williams’ mishap in a late-district contest took him out of the lineup.

The Roos could have used Williams’ prolific bat in the order, a stick that produced a batting average above .570 on the season. But already well on the mend, Dustin heads off to play at the next level as the 2012-13 All-Parker County Most Valuable Player.

Brock’s Shay Phillips returned to the superlatives list after a senior campaign that featured the lead-off hitter’s bat, as well. The Eagles’ ace pitcher missed starts through part of the season, but eventually climbed the hill again by playoff time. But his bat remained active throughout, enough to be named his district’s MVP.

Aledo head coach and his staff get the nod for the top coaches of the year, leading the Bearcats to a district championship and into the Area round.

All of the Parker County nines are worthy represented on the 2013 APC roster, with the level, and quantity, of talent prompting a healthy list of members.
