(Bonne Terre) North County Raiders junior Jobe Smith is the Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week.
Smith has already starred for the Raiders on the football field and the basketball court, but he’s off to a fast start on the baseball diamond as well.
In 4 games last week, Smith went 7-for-13 at the plate and had 5 runs batted in.
Smith also allowed just 3 earned runs and struck out 12 batters in 7 2/3 innings pitched.
North County head coach Jacob Donze says the progress Smith has made on the diamond has been invaluable.
Smith has already earned all-state and Dream Team honors in football over the last year.
As Athlete of the Week, he receives a T-shirt, a certificate and a coupon for a free entree at Applebee’s in Farmington.
