What is the most played song on your iPod recently? R.I.P. by Young Jeezy.

Last week’s accomplishments: On just one full day’s rest following a complete game, Fay came on to pitch 4 1/3 innings of scoreless relief to help PC to a 6-4 win over River Ridge-Scales Mound in the Class 1A Benedictine University Super-Sectional to send the Panthers to state. In the state semifinal, Fay allowed one run on five hits to lead the Panthers to a 3-1 victory over Salt Fork.

Fay on his performance: I was just really trying to get ahead of batters with my fastball - not let them get comfortable and get ahead as much as possible. (I wanted to) keep it low and work out.

Coach Dave Garcia says: It’s pretty incredible that he was able to come back and pitch as well as he did in so many consecutive big games. In the postseason he was 4-0. He won three big games for us in about seven days. His mental toughness and his physical stability throughout the whole week impressed myself and all of Putnam County.
