Willie Calhoun’s ability at the plate shines yet again.

Yavapai College Roughrider alumni Willie Calhoun was drafted by the Dodgers in the 4th round in 2015. He now plays for the Tulsa Drillers (Double-A), and was named to the Prospect Team of the Week for the third time this year. 

Calhoun hit 5 homers in just 8 games, bringing in nine RBIs and notching 24 total bases. He currently leads the Texas League with 67 RBIs. His total of 22 homers has him tied for top honors with Matt Chapman, a 3rd baseman for the Midland RockHounds. 

Calhoun was named to the All-Star teams for 2015 (Ogden) and 2016 (Tulsa), and has been named Player of the Week twice this season.
