    TUCSON, Ariz. - Junior outfielder Bryson Myles has been named a Louisville Slugger third team all-America selection as announced by Collegiate Baseball newspaper Thursday morning. The teams were based on performances up to this weekend's regional playoffs and was selected by the staff of Collegiate Baseball newspaper.

    Myles was named the Southland Conference player, hitter and newcomer of the year before last week's Southland Conference Tournament in which he was named to the all-tournament team. He is the second Lumberjack to ever be named to the Louisville Slugger all-America squad, joining Steven Hill's selection following the 2007 season.

    The junior transfer from Weatherford College finished the season with a SFA school-record 53 stolen bases, 14 steals more than any other player in the nation. In addition, Myles led the SLC and ranked third in the nation in hits (99), while finishing fourth in runs scored (69). His .411 batting average also led the SLC and placed him 14th in the country.

    Myles was joined on the third team by Texas A&M-Corpus Christi's Matt Holland, and Texas State second-team pitcher Carson Smith as the only three Southland Conference players to be selected.
