Pinellas Athlete of the Week

Doug Rovello

East Lake H.S. Baseball/Senior

THIS WEEK’S FEATS:

Rovello accounted for both of East Lake’s hits in the team’s season-ending loss to Durant in the Class 8A region finals. He also recorded five assists from second base that included starting a, inning-ending 4-6-3 double play in the first.

FAST FACT:

The Eagles’ advancement to the region finals marked their deepest run since 2002’s Class 5A state second-place finish.

QUOTABLES:

“Doug Rovello’s kind of the heart and soul of our team. He had a good game but we just kind of ran into a buzz saw.” – East Lake coach Dan Genna on Rovello’s key role and the tough task of facing Durant pitcher Tyler Danish.
