Rudy Brumfield received the Captain’s Award as well as the Cover the Earth Outfielder’s Award. Brumfield was a force to reckon with in the outfield. Brumfield is planning to attend William Carey University.

Tucker Lambert received the Co-Best Offensive Player Award. Lambert provided a big bat during the season in key situations. Grant Leake also received the Co-Best Offensive Player Award. Leake was a key player at the plate.

Trey Nettles and Connor Douglas both received the Co-Best Defensive Player Award.
