I thought Tommy White would be a good hitter in the SEC. Maybe have a little sophomore slump. He is even better than I thought he would be even with 30 home runs last year.

Accolades aside, outside of Dylan Crews, Tre Morgan has been the most complete and consistent position player on the team, but he rarely gets national recognition.

All well deserved. If Travenski got the whole season then I think he would have made it on here. Also if Dugas wouldn't have tanked on the back half of the SEC schedule
