UT Martin senior Will Blackmon has been named the Ohio Valley Confer-ence’s Baseball Player of the Week for his efforts against Evansville and Tennessee Tech.
Blackmon, a 6-6, 220-pound designated hitter from Fort Worth, Texas, hit .538 in four games this past week. He was 7-for-13 at the plate with five runs, three doubles, two home runs and eight RBI as the Skyhawks compiled a 3-1 worksheet including winning two of three against Tennessee Tech in a weekend OVC series.
