It's never easy being the coach's son, but it's one proud papa who nominated Alex Dreier to be this week's 103.3 KFR/Meijer H.S. Athlete of the week.

Rob Dreier is the baseball coach at Parchment, and son Alex has been his shortstop for three seasons now.

"Alex is our leading hitter (.448) and bats 3rd in our lineup. He was 13 for 19 hitting this week (.684). 4 doubles, 3 triples, 7 RBI, 12 runs, reached base 16 of 22 plate appearances, says Dreier. He also "turned 4 double plays. He leads the team in stolen bases with 15 in 15 attempts."

Congratulations to Alex.

If you know of someone who you think is deserving of being the next 103.3 KFR/ Meijer H.S. Athlete of the week, nominate them here.
