WAC Player of the Week

With all the new players picked, for most their time as an Indian will be short as more than half will not sign by the August 15th signing date and enter the draft again next year looking to improve their slot.
One day to go and a lot of information to follow
First, we are all looking for more info on the players who the Indians have drafted so far and will draft tomorrow (last 20 rounds start at 11:30 am). Check back on these players as, for the next few days and maybe weeks, their blog postings will be updated with information including, hopefully, interviews and, for those playing on summer league...
