Gators’ Mueller Breeze’s April Athlete of the Month
The votes are in for April’s Athlete of the Month, and the winner is Island Coast’s Jake Mueller.
Mueller, a junior, blasted two homers and collected eight RBI in three Gator victories during his nomination week. The University of Alabama commit had a five-RBI performance against Cape Coral, and scored seven total runs going 7-for-8 over three games.
Most recently, Mueller cranked three home runs and had six RBIs in a District 4A-13 victory over Mariner Wednesday night.
“Over spring break, I had a rough week, so I felt I needed to improve and get locked in,” Mueller said of his Athlete of the Week performance. “This year I’m trying to work the opposite field and make sure I can hit to all parts of the field all season long.”
Voting for May’s Athlete of the Month will open towards the end of the month. Stay up to date on www.capecoralbreeze.com and our Facebook and Twitter pages for the announcement.
Athlete of the Month nominees are comprised of staff-picked Athlete of the Week selections.
