East Carolina's Drew Reynolds is one of three Conference USA relief pitchers named to the initial NCBWA Stopper-of-the-Year Award, given to the nation's top collegiate baseball reliever. Joining Reynolds from C-USA are Southern Miss' Bradley Roney and Tulane's Alex Facundus.
Reynolds, a preseason First-Team All C-USA selection by the leagues coaches, was a finalist for the John Olerud Two-Way Player-of-the-Year Award a year ago. The Cherryville, N.C. native led the team with 10 saves posting a 3-0 record in 21 appearances and sporting a 3.00 ERA.
At the plate, he ranked second on the team with a .330 batting average in 54 games. Reynolds started 48 games as the Pirates designated hitter, where he belted three home runs, drove in 24 and scored 31 runs. The junior utility man earned Second-Team All C-USA honors and closed out the season ranking among the league leaders in saves (fourth) and batting average (10th).
Reynolds and the Pirates will open the 2013 season next Friday, Feb. 15 at home when they play host to nationally ranked Virginia at Lewis Field inside Clark-LeClair Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m. (EST).
