PomeranzOleMiss BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Auburn outfielder Hunter Morris was selected 2010 SEC Baseball Player of the Year, Drew Pomeranz of Ole Miss was named SEC Pitcher of the Year and Florida third baseman Austin Maddox was named SEC Freshman of the Year by a vote of the league’s 12 head baseball coaches. The coaches also tabbed Florida skipper Kevin O’Sullivan SEC Coach of the Year. Cory Luckie of Auburn was named SEC Baseball Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

 

The Gators secured their 11th SEC crown in school history and league-best 20th divisional championship by overcoming a pair of one-run deficits and secured their first series win in Columbia since 1996 by taking the first two matchups against the Gamecocks. Third-year skipper Kevin O’Sullivan became the seventh head baseball coach at UF to bring home the SEC’s top prize and the Orange and Blue established a single-season mark with their 22nd league triumph.

    Coach John Pawlowski, Auburn was robbed for coach of the year. Nothing against the job that O’Sullivan did at Florida, but most people had them picked one or two in the East which is where they finished. Auburn was picked 5th in the West by everone and finished 1st. That is coaching.
