Already matching his production from last season, Jaylon Lee (Newport News, Va./Denbigh) has started off his sophomore season red hot earning him Old Dominion Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors.
This past week the sophomore batted .444 (8-for-18) and accounted for 18 runs in EMU's 5 games last week. Six of his hits went for extra bases, giving him a whopping 1.056 slugging percentage.
Lee hit a pair of home runs, and had 3 or more RBIs in 3 of the games. His highlight came in a 3-4 performance against Southern Virginia, where he homered and doubled, driving in four and scoring twice himself.
For the week, Lee had 11 RBIs and scored 7 times. He also walked 3 times and stole a base, and added a perfect fielding percentage on 11 chances in center field.
Lee currently sits tied for the conference lead in home runs with three on the season and sits second in RBIs with 15.
The Royals are currently 5-5-1 on the still young season hosting Christopher Newport on Tuesday at 2:00pm.
