MACON, Ga. (May 25, 2010) - Junior first baseman Paul Hoilman (Johnson City, Tenn.) was named the Atlantic Sun Player of the Year as the ETSU baseball team had five All-Conference selections, announced the conference office on Tuesday.


Catcher Derek Trent (Kingsport, Tenn.), third baseman Bo Reeder (Cookeville, Tenn.), shortstop Kerry Doane (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) and right fielder Andrew Green (Powell, Tenn.) also received Atlantic Sun All-Conference honors.


Hoilman, an A-Sun first team selection, is only the third player in the program's history to be named the conference player of the year joining Caleb Moore and Gary Roninette. Hoilman is also one of only five ETSU players that have received first team honors in back to back seasons.


A local product, Hoilman leads the Atlantic Sun in batting average (.428), hits (95), runs (76), home runs (24), total bases (194) and slugging percentage (.874). On the season, Hoilman set new single season school records for hits, runs, home runs, total bases, RBI and extra base hits (49).


Joining Hoilman on the All-Conference first team is Trent who is hitting .358 with 16 doubles, 13 home runs and 63 runs driven in. A Bench Award semifinalist, Trent leads the Atlantic Sun having thrown out 23 runners on the year.


Reeder earned All-Conference for the second straight season as he was named to the A-Sun second team. Reeder is second on the team with a .359 average and 19 home runs. The third baseman also has ten doubles, three triples and 60 RBI.


Doane and Green round out the ETSU all-conference selections as they were both named to the A-Sun All-Freshmen Team. Doane is fifth on the team with 56 RBI breaking the ETSU freshmen record. The Fort Lauderdale native hit .333 with 22 doubles and nine home runs. Green also had an outstanding freshman campaign leading the Buccaneers with 17 stolen bases, and set a new school single season record with 64 singles. The right fielder is fourth on the team with a .342 average and has driven in 29 runs on 12 doubles and two home runs.
