Seward Catcher Named First Team NJCAA All American
06/04/2014

With all of the success that the Seward County baseball program has had since the turn of the century, you know it is special when something good happens that hasn't happened in over a decade, and that is exactly what happened on Tuesday, as freshman catcher Brent Williams was named a 1st Team NJCAA All-American.  Williams becomes the Saints first 1st Team All-American since Ryan Nelson earned the honors during the 2003 season.

Williams had a breakout 2014 for the Saints, hitting .415 with 7 home runs and 69 RBI's.  He set an NJCAA Division I record with 37 doubles on the season, leading the nation by 13.  He finished 4th in the country with 95 hits as a freshman and his 69 RBI's ranked him in the top 10.  Williams had 28 multi-hit games in 2014 and a 23 game hit streak which included a 10 game multi-hit streak inside of it.  He was a 1st Team All-Region VI selection as well as a 1st Team All-Jayhawk West pick and the Jayhawk West Freshman of the Year.

He becomes the 20th NJCAA All-American in program history and the 19th in the past 21 seasons.  He is just the 6th 1st Team NJCAA All-American in Seward County history, joining a prestigious list including Ryan Nelson (2003), Cory Patton (2002), Chaz Eiguren (1997), Sean Eylar (1996), and Tim Forkner (1993).  Williams is the first Saints All-American since current Giants farmhand Kelby Tomlinson was an Honorable Mention All-American pick in 2010.
