KLFY Athlete of the Week: Teurlings High pitcher Peyton LeJeune

Athlete of the Week

Senior Peyton LeJeune is one of the reasons why the Rebels have won 3 straight baseball state championships.

Peyton, a pitcher for the Rebels, and Coach Mike Thibodeaux has continued to impress this season, and realizes the only reason his success has come at such a high level… is his surrounding him…
Peyton says, ” one of the reasons for my success is my team.  My team means a lot, and they are important to me. and we are focusing on what my team needs me to do!” 

Coach Thibodeaux says a lot of the success could be attributed to Peyton, and his ability to play more than one position.
Something that is imperative in high school baseball.

Coach Mike says, “In high school baseball we have two-way players. guys have to be able to pitch, and usually, that is your better players.  Those are your guys who can get it done offensively as well. We wouldn’t be in a position to have a successful season if we didn’t have him.”

Teurlings knows a thing or two about successful seasons, with 3 straight state titles.  Peyton believes the key to that is one thing.

Peyton says, ” you have to stay hungry.  And we have a bunch of guys who are hungry, some people might think that three would be enough, but we are still very hungry.”
