Garcia Preseason C-USA Player of the Year, Rios All-Conference

Conference USA's coaches share a respect for junior catcher Aramis Garcia, who led FIU in hits (72) and home runs (11) last year while batting .321 with 51 RBI. Garcia also nabbed more attempted stealers than ADT.

For this, coaches voted Garcia Conference USA Preseason Player of the Year, along with East Carolina utility player Drew Reynolds. Sophomore infielder Edwin Rios also made the preseason all-conference team.

FIU was picked sixth in the conference. Rice, either the regular season or conference tournament champion eight consecutive seasons, was unsurprisingly voted the favorite.

Good stuff. Congrats to both in their preseason awards, especially to Aramis on being voted the pre-season player of the Year in the conference. But now, they have to walk the walk and make it happen. Go Panthers!

That's one Garcia in athletics worth keeping! Unfortunately he may leave via draft before the nasty Garcia is finally let go of his duties.

congrats to the Aramis and Edwin...
This will be a big year for Aramis. Needs to hit .345 and about 15 home runs and he will be Turtles first top 10 round selection.


I'm proud of the man you've become Aramis. Ignore all the chatter and do what you do best. Hard work pays off.
