Covington’s Richard Long has been named the Signs USA Pitcher of the Week!

Long (Jacksonville) fired a complete game (7 innings) shutout against Woodstock on Wednesday, allowing only one hit and no walks in the process, along with five strikeouts. He faced the minimum over the seven innings, as the only batter to reach base was immediately erased while trying to steal.

For the season, Long is 2-1, 4.01 in 33 2/3 innings, with 36 hits allowed, 10 walks, and 23 strikeouts.
