NC State Sophomore Shortstop Will Wilson just picked up his 3rd ACC Player of the Week honor of the season. He becomes the only player in school history to do so, since the weekly awards began in 1989.
Wilson turned in an outstanding week at the plate to lead NC State to a perfect 5-0 record, highlighted by its second ACC sweep. The sophomore shortstop from Kings Mountain, North Carolina, recorded a .550 batting average with 11 hits during the week to go along with 12 RBI, both of which are career highs for Wilson in a single week. He tallied at least two hits in four of the five games and hit a home run in the only game that he didn’t have multiple hits. He logged four RBI in the second game against James Madison and four on Friday against Wake Forest to register eight RBI over a two-game stretch. Wilson compiled a slugging percentage of .900 for the week and also had a .542 on-base percentage. He had five assists and two putouts defensively and did not commit an error. (ACC)
