JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (June 10, 2010) - Junior first baseman Paul Hoilman (Johnson City, Tenn.) continued to add to his accolades on Thursday as he was named the Atlantic Sun Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year, announced the Atlantic Sun conference office.

 

"What a great honor for Paul," said ETSU head coach Tony Skole. "He couldn't be more deserving as every day he displays excellence in the classroom and in the competitive arena.  As a student/athlete at the Division I level, I believe this award represents the highest honor one can receive." 

 

"As a department, we are extremely proud of not only how Paul competes on the field, but how he represents the highest ideals of what it means to be a student athlete," said ETSU Director of Athletics Dave Mullins. "Paul is a great athlete and student. We appreciate the attention that he brings to the program, and wish him continued success in his academic and athletic careers.

 

The junior polished off a stellar season after leading the Bucs to a second-straight appearance in the A-Sun Tournament in 2010. He led the A-Sun with a .421 batting average and 25 home runs. A two-time First Team All-Atlantic Sun selection, Hoilman garnered several accolades in 2010, including being named a Louisville Slugger First Team All-American and semifinalist for the prestigious Golden Spikes Award. He currently holds the ETSU school records for home runs (51) and RBI (197).

 

"To be selected as the scholar-athlete of the year in your respective conference is about as good as it gets," Skole added. "There are so many tremendous student/athletes (in all sports) in the Atlantic Sun Conference, and for Paul earn this recognition is quite an accomplishment. Paul represents what is great about college athletics, and he truly is the total package. Paul has the unique ability to make everyone (teammates, coaches and peers) around him a better person."

 

A mathematics major, Hoilman owns a 3.93 overall GPA, and plans to attend medical school following graduation. A three-time A-Sun All-Academic selection, Hoilman also earned First-Team Academic All-America honors from CoSIDA and ESPN The Magazine.
