Owls Play Three-game C-USA Series Middle Tennessee
Enters the 2016 season as the Owls' leading returning hitter (.311)... 2015: Conference USA Academic Honor Roll; One of only three Owls to play in all 59 games... Tied for fourth on the team in starts (56), each of which was playing a different position (right field) than in his freshman season... Finished fourth on the team in hits (65), batting average (.311), runs scored (31), RBI (30), on-base percentage (.384) and total plate appearances (244)... Led the Owls in sacrifice bunts (7) and plus-speed helped him bunt for a base hit a team-leading six times... Shared the team lead with five steals, and had the second-most stolen bases attempts (9)... Recorded a 20-game hitting streak from March 1 to April 3, the longest by an Owl in a decade (Brian Friday, 20-straight in 2006)... The day after the streak snapped he proceeded to go 3-for-5 with a double and a career-high four RBI... Reached base in 26-consecutive games (overlapping the hit streak)... Tallied 14 multi-hit games, including a season-high three hits three different times (C-USA foes Middle Tennessee, UAB and Florida Atlantic)... Batted .343 with runners on base, and .339 (21-of-62) when there were two outs already recorded in the inning... Reached base at a .314 clip when leading off an inning (16-of-51)... Usually batted sixth in the lineup (22) times, but also saw action hitting second (nine times) and third (ten times)... Shared the team lead in most at bats with the bases-loaded (11), where he had four hits for a .364 average... Drove-in two or more runs in a game nine times, the third-highest total on the team... Tied the Rice school record (along with Tristan Gray and Teykl) for most at bats in a single game (9), established during the 20-inning marathon vs. Houston in the NCAA Regional... Only Owl to steal two bases in a game (at Lamar), and was also the only player to register two SAC flies in a single game (at home vs. Houston, which were his only two all year)... Tied his career-high with eight put outs in the 20-inning game, then didn't have a single ball hit his way the next game a few hours later against Louisiana... Played right field with the same speedy range he had in center as a freshman, but added a defensive dimension of throwing out four runners on the bases... Registered three double plays by throwing out runners, including one at home plate vs. LA Tech and twice behind the runner at first base after sensational catches... Also threw out a Texas A&M batter trying to stretch a single into a double.
2014: Played the most of any of the Owl freshmen, 44 of the team's 62 games with 35 starts... All but one of the starts was in centerfield (when he was the designated hitter in the final game of the season against Texas A&M in the NCAA Regional at Reckling Park)... Started on Opening Day at Stanford as a true freshman, where he reached base three times in his first four trips to the plate (one hit and two walks)... Finished the year third on the team in nine appearances off the bench (9), and tied for third in stolen bases (4)... Converted on four-of-five attempted steals... Was sixth on the squad with five sacrifice bunts, but exceptional speed helped him beat out three of the bunt attempts for base hits... Speed on the basepaths also helped him be the only Owl with at least five at bats not to hit into a double-play... Batted leadoff five times and hit second in the order ten times... Steady full-season percentages included reaching base at a .265 pace when leading off an inning, .266 when the bases empty, and .262 with runners-on... After batting .234 (15-of-64) to start the rookie season, he maintained a .295 pace (18-of-61) in the second half... Hit .271 in Conference USA regular season games... Collected two or more hits in a game seven times, including a career-high five hits on the road at former league foe Tulane... One of only two Owls (along with John Clay Reeves) to register a five-hit day... The five-hit game helped him reach base in 8-of-9 consecutive trips to the plate during one stretch... Went 4-for-5 with a career-high three RBI in the home victory over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi... Drove in two runs on a pair of hits in the road victory against a Texas team that went on to play in the College World Series... Drew a career-best two walks in a game three times, including Stanford and twice in the C-USA weekend series at FIU... Scored a career-high two runs in the second game of the FIU series... Recorded a career-high eight defensive put outs in centerfield against C-USA foe Old Dominion, the most by an Owl non-first baseman or catcher all season long.
