MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State second baseman Brett Scott was one of four infielders selected to the 2007 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VII First Team, the College Sports Information Directors of America have announced.
A redshirt junior from Manhattan, Scott will receive a degree in Finance
with a minor in Economics this Saturday prior to the Cats’ evening
contest with Texas A&M and will graduate with a 3.97 GPA. The honor for Scott marks the first time a Wildcat baseball player has been named
Academic All-District since Tim Doty back in 2003.
Scott, who has one season of eligibility left on the baseball diamond
after this season, is currently hitting .299 with a homer and 19 RBI
for the 31-17 Wildcats. Last month, Scott was honored by the Big 12
Conference with his community work as he was one of 12 Big 12
student-athletes named to the Spring Good Works Team.
In order to be eligible for academic all-district honors, a
student-athlete must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.20 on a
4.00 scale and participate in at least 50 percent of his team’s games.
Freshmen and first-year transfers are not eligible.
Scott and the Wildcats host No. 11 Texas A&M this weekend at Tointon
Stadium in a Big 12 Conference series. Friday and Saturday’s contests
will be at 6:30 p.m., while Sunday’s finale will begin at 1 p.m.
