Platte County Baseball is proud to announce that senior Jake Knudsen has been named Pirate of the Week for Platte County High School!

A quote from Coach Sipes: "Jake had a fantastic state tournament. He went 4-8 at the plate (.500) while driving in 6 RBI's, 4 of those in a 5-3 semifinal win over Ft. Zumwalt East. Jake has been a leader all year long, verbally and by example. His preparation for each and every game is a big reason we were able to win a state championship!" Congrats Jake!
