Island Coast’s Mueller selected Breeze Athlete of the Month for May
Voting begins for People’s Choice Athlete of the Year
The votes are in for the Cape Coral Breeze’s April Athlete of the Month, and the winner is Island Coast High School’s Jake Mueller.
The Alabama commit went 7-for-12 over three games during his nomination week for the Gators, totaling seven RBI and four extra-base hits. Against Evangelical Christian, Mueller blasted two home runs, the second being a walk-off, two-run shot in a 6-5 win.
“We were down two and a guy got on and I was just trying to keep the game going, not trying to do too much,” Mueller said. “It was a 3-0 count and I got the green light, so I said to myself if I get a good pitch, let’s try to crush it. I got the pitch and hit it very well.”
Voting for the Cape Coral Breeze Reader’s Choice Athlete of the Year starts today.
This year’s candidates are Ryleigh Acosta, Maximus Brady, Luke Buzzelli, Mackenzie De Lisle, Kassidy Emerick, Chris Minto, Jake Mueller, Carter Smith, Levontai “Bo” Summersett, Wyatt Whalen, Quentin Wimbush and Kendall Wylie.
