Terrier Alum Liam Wilson Lights It Up In The Perfect Game League
Former Terrier standout Liam Wilson (2013) had a week to remember last week with his Amsterdam Mohawks of The Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League in New York State.

Wilson, a rising senior with NCAA Division 1 Canisius College was on fire. A highly productive hitter wherever he’s played, Liam, simply put, had an insane week. Over the past week, Wilson has hit the cover off the ball with a blistering .579 batting average (11-for-19), while his five doubles and two home runs resulted in a sky-high 1.158 slugging percentage; both figures paced the PGCBL over the past seven days. In addition Willy produced 12 RBIs and scored six runs in seven games played. The product of Ayr, Ontario, Canada, finished a perfect 3-for-3 on two occasions, first in a 13-2 win in Game 1 of a doubleheader against Glens Falls on June 22. All three of his hits that day went for extra bases, as he slugged two doubles and one home run, as part of a season-high five-RBI performance. With a knowing nod, Terrier Senior advisor Scott Vandevalk’s response was … “nothing new for Willy”. Liam, who was recognized as a MAAC 1st Team All Star this year at Canisius was recently named the Co-Player of the Week in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League as well as the CSB (Collegiate Summer Baseball) National Hitter of the Week. Congratulations Liam, The Terrier Family
