MIAMI SHROES, Fla. -- Barry University baseball standout Adrian English has earned his third postseason accolade so far in 2013 after being named First-Team All-South Region by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

The junior infielder continues to collect the hardware after posting career-highs in batting average, hits, RBI and several other categories this season. English was a constant force in the Buccaneers’ lineup all season and helped guide Barry to a 31-19 overall mark.

The Miami native began the season with a 15 game hitting streak and hit safely in 44 of the Bucs’ 50 games. English also amassed 26 multi-hit games and 16 multi-RBI games this spring, finishing with a .392 average, 80 hits, 50 RBI and his 20 doubles were good for 14th in the nation.

So far English has earned First-Team All-SSC, Daktronics First-Team All-Region and now First-Team All-South Region from the NCBWA.
