A two-time co-captain of the Gators, Hazzard was a First Team All-Southeastern Conference selection and 18th round draft selection by the New York Yankees in 1996. He is the only player in UF history to be named to the All-SEC First Team, All-SEC Tournament Team, NCAA Regional All-Tournament Team and College World Series All-Tournament Team in the same season.
Hazzard, who still ranks among Florida's top-10 leaders in several offensive categories, was the recipient of the Coaches Award, given to the individual who demonstrates leadership and exemplifies dedication and determination.
