CBD Journal with Army’s Alex Jensen (September 22nd)

cbd_journal_jensenNow that the semester is in full swing I figured it was time for another entry. We are already four weeks into classes at West Point and over two weeks into our fall season. This is always a difficult time for college baseball players because there are no official NCAA games and no tournaments. It is a time to work on the little things, earn spots in the starting roster, and get to know the younger guys on the team. I personally welcome the fall for two reasons. One, it is the best time to begin coming together as a team as the foundation for the spring is being laid. Two, it provides an opportunity for guys to compete for a starting spot and show what they have been working on in the offseason. Overall, the fall can be taken as a time-filler or a productive period of growth and improvement. Continue reading CBD Journal with Army’s Alex Jensen (September 22nd)

CBD Photo Gallery: Allen, Orvis Power Rebels Past Frogs

OMAHA, Neb. — When they got to the TD Ameritrade Park Thursday afternoon, Ole Miss first baseman Sikes Orvis excitedly turned to roommate Will Allen and told him to look at the flags in centerfield.

Instead of furiously blowing in as they have been for nearly the entire 2014 College World Series, the flags were lazily blowing out. Orvis and Allen took advantage against TCU leading the Rebels to a 6-4 victory to survive another elimination game — Ole Miss’ fourth elimination game in just over two weeks.

College World Series One-On-One: Ole Miss C/DH Will Allen

OMAHA, Neb. — Ole Miss (48-20) brought out the bats, knocking 11 hits to keep its season alive with a 6-4 victory over TCU (48-18) Thursday night at TD Ameritrade Park.

The Rebels bullpen allowed one hit in 5.2 innings after starter Sam Smith struggled, but it was the veteran boppers in the middle of the Ole Miss lineup that were the difference.

Senior catcher Will Allen, who had to DH due to a bum shoulder, and junior first baseman Sikes Orvis powered the Rebels. The roommates combined for six hits and five RBI. Allen finished 3-for-5 with a two-run double and the game-winning RBI single in the seventh inning to put Ole Miss ahead for good.

After the game, Allen talked about the Ole Miss offense coming alive and how they got wide-eyed when getting to the ballpark and seeing the wind blowing out today.

Will Allen also discussed the job of the Rebels bullpen and the differences of being the designated hitter rather than being behind the dish. He also talked about his relationship with Sikes Orvis and how the team is staying loose despite facing elimination four times in two weeks.

And Allen was all over Ole Miss’ preseason rankings in the SEC West and how the Rebels are proving the critics wrong.

Check out the full one-on-one interview with Allen: Continue reading College World Series One-On-One: Ole Miss C/DH Will Allen
