Athlete of the Week: Stevenson Reynolds

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO?KJCT) Palisade sophomore Stevenson Reynolds grew up hearing stories of his father, who played baseball at Colorado Mesa.

The 6"5 sophomore wants stories of his own.

"I hope to play college baseball at some point but you know I haven't really looked that much into it," said Reynolds. "I'm only a sophomore. But eventually once I get older and stuff I'd love to. Hopefully I get those opportunities coming soon."

Reynolds has led the Bulldogs to a 16-4 record. He is hitting .417 with one home run and 10 RBI's.

"He has a lot of power so really helps us in our lineup," said senior teammate Austin Bernal. "He is obviously young still has a lot of baseball to play but he’s already making a big impact."

He also is a key member of the team's pitching rotation.

"I think the presence he brings is not just as a good hitter and a good pitcher and a good fielder," said head coach Nate Porter. "But he just has of a presence of a good attitude and a good work ethic."

He is already treated as an experienced member of the team.

"I expect him next year and his senior year to be a little bit more vocal," said Porter. "But this year I am happy with him just going out and playing as hard as he can and setting the bar for other guys."
