College Player of the Week: Austin Gomm
After being named the Canadian Baseball Network College Player of the Week, it's hard to argue with Austin Gomm being named the top Terrier on the college circuit.

It's the third time this season that Gomm has taken home the honour.

He got his week started with a 4-for-5 performance with a home run and three RBI in Parkland College's 16-13 Game 1 loss to Lincoln Land.

In Game 2, an 8-5 win, he collected a pair of hits and drove in two more before hitting his second home run of the week in a 2-1 Game 3 victory.

The slick fielding infielder finished the week the way he started it, going 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI.
