McDowell senior Ryan Platz finds different ways to contribute each time he steps onto the field.
Whether it’s coming up with a clutch hit, making solid plays in right field or putting together a good start on the mound, Platz is contributing to the Trojans’ terrific season.

Platz has driven in nine runs this season and is 2-0 with a 0.58 ERA in 12 innings on the mound.
