Stott Selected To Freshman All-American Team|
June 7, 2017
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV Baseball's Bryson Stott was named to the Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-American Team, as announced by the newspaper Wednesday. This acknowledgement follows the Mountain West's Co-Freshman of the Year recognition the Las Vegas native received last month.
Stott played in and started 54 games for the Rebels at shortstop. He hit .294 with 63 hits, 14 of which went for extra bases with 11 doubles, two triples and one home run, to go along with 31 runs and 29 RBI. Additionally, he had 17 multiple-hit games, seven multiple-run games and five multiple-RBI games.
"Bryson was definitely a bright spot for us," said head coach Stan Stolte. "For him to step right in and play the way he did is very encouraging. Defensively, he was as sound as anyone on the West Coast. It will be exciting to watch him continue to grow and improve and take more of a leadership role as we get this program back to where it needs to be."
The 2016 Desert Oasis High School graduate started the year with an 11-game hitting streak that resulted in a .447 batting average that was powered by 21 hits in 47 at-bats. Additionally, he had a pair of seven-game hitting streaks later in the season.
Moreover, he reached base safely in 43 contests, and that included a stretch of 20 straight to open the 2017 campaign.
One year ago, fellow Rebel Kyle Isbel claimed a share of the Conference's Freshman of the Year award and earned a spot on College Baseball's Freshman All-American Team.
