Bellefonte’s CJ Funk has been named a Centre Daily Times Athlete of the Week.

Funk, a pitcher and shortstop for the Bellefonte 11-12 year-old Little League team, was instrumental in keeping his team alive in the District 5 All-Star Tournament.

Funk was 2 for 3 in Sunday’s 7-2 victory over Clearfield, belting a three-run home run for the go-ahead runs as part of his team’s seven-run fifth inning. He also pitched briefly in the win and will start in Monday’s deciding championship game, when the teams play a rematch in Bellefonte.
