Boss, Trevino pick up preseason SLC honors
FRISCO, Texas – As the Oral Roberts University baseball season quickly approaches, two Golden Eagles picked up preseason honors as Tyler Boss was named Preseason First Team All-Southland Conference and Jose Trevino was listed on the Second Team. Both players were Third Team All-Southland selections in 2013.
Earning the Third Team selection as a designated hitter last season, Boss had the second highest batting average on the team last season at .295. The Spring, Texas, native hit seven homeruns, added ten doubles and drove in 32 runners. The senior finished seventh in the league with a .479 slugging percentage.
A junior from Corpus Christi, Texas, Trevino earned the Preseason Second Team selection as a catcher. Trevino had no problem moving into the catcher roll in 2013, as he threw out 19 runners attempting to steal, third most in the SLC and the second most for Golden Eagle since 2001. Trevino hit .241 with a team high eight home runs, nine doubles and 37 runs batted in.
Boss, Trevino and the rest of the Golden Eagles begin play on February 14 as they host Southeast Missouri State in a three-game series. For more information on ORU baseball, follow @ORUBaseball on Twitter or visit ORUGoldenEagles.com.
