Dozier Named A Perfect Game All-American
June 13, 2013
NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Just one day after being named an All-American by both the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and Baseball America, Stephen F. Austin junior shortstop Hunter Dozier claimed yet another honor on Thursday by being named a Perfect Game College Second Team All-American.
Dozier, who made the team as a designated hitter, becomes the first Lumberjack to receive All-American honors from Perfect Game.
The Denton, Texas (Denton HS), native was selected eighth overall by the Kansas City Royals in the recent MLB Amateur Draft to equal the highest draft selection of any sport in Southland Conference history.
Dozier finished the season batting .396 (10th in nation) with 17 home runs (6th in nation) and 52 RBI while posting a slugging percentage of .755 (3rd in nation) and totaling 160 bases (6th in nation).
It took Dozier only three seasons in Nacogdoches to become the school's all-time leader in hits and doubles. He also owns the school's single-season record for multi-hit games and doubles. Earlier this season Dozier became the first Lumberjack in program history to be named a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award. He is also a national semifinalist for both the Brooks Wallace Award (nation's top shortstop), and the Dick Howser Award (top player).
