OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (April 30, 2014) – Ten NCAA baseball student-athletes who excel both on and off the diamond were selected as finalists for the 2014 Senior CLASS Award on Wednesday, and ETSU two-way standout Clinton Freeman (Jonesborough, Tenn.) was one of the candidates to make the prestigious group.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
Finalists were chosen by national media from the list of 30 candidates announced in March. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to help select the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote on the Senior CLASS Award website through June 9. Fan votes will be combined with media and Division I head coaches’ votes to determine the winner.
The Senior CLASS Award winner will be announced during the 2014 College World Series in June.
