It was a total team effort for the Amsterdam Mohawks at the Perfect Game Collegiate League this summer.

From start to finish, the Mohawks were incredibly consistent with several key cogs leading the charge. The list of key contributors includes New Jersey Tech's Ed Charlton, Auburn's Rocky McCord and Kentucky's Taylor Martin and Chandler Shepherd, among others.

McCord and Shepherd were two of the league's top prospects this summer, while offensively at the PGCBL, Kansas State's Ross Kivett put together a fantastic summer, hitting .401 with 29 RBIs.

With fall workouts fast approaching, we take an inside look at some of the top performers at the PGCL.

INF Ross Kivett, Kansas State -- The talented infielder only hit .286 for the Wildcats in the spring, but really stepped up this summer with an impressive campaign. He batted .401 with 10 doubles, three triples and 29 RBIs. He also induced 22 walks on the summer. Kivett certainly is primed for a very solid 2013 campaign.

OF Ed Charlton, New Jersey Tech
-- Charlton had a very consistent year of baseball at the plate. He finished the spring hitting .315 for NJIT. He was even better this summer, hitting .353 with six doubles, three triples, seven homers and 30 RBIs. Additionally, Charlton induced 16 walks this summer.

INF Jordan Enos, Holy Cross -- Enos finished the spring with a .305 batting average for the Crusaders. He also put together quite the impressive summer, hitting .339 with 15 doubles, two triples, a home run and 28 RBIs. Additionally, he finished the summer with 20 walks.

OF Chris Cruz, Cornell
-- There's no doubt Cruz struggled in the spring, hitting just .258 on the season. However, he rose to the occasion this summer with a solid campaign. He led his summer team in hitting with a .319 average, 10 doubles, eight homers and 40 RBIs. He also had a .407 OBP and was 13-for-17 in stolen bases.

INF Chase Green, Southern Illinois-Edwardsville -- Green was one of several players who rose to the occasion this summer. He finished the spring with just a .254 batting average, but certainly improved. At the PGCBL, he batted .336 with nine doubles, two triples, three homers and 20 RBIs. He also had a very solid .421 OBP.

INF Joe Landi, Rhode Island
-- Landi finished the spring with just a .250 batting average with the Rams, but stepped up at the PGCBL. He batted .329 with seven doubles, a triple, two homers and 35 RBIs. He also had a fantastic .425 OBP and was a sensational 31-for-32 in stolen bases.
