Kansas City, Mo. (June 7, 2017) – Jalin Lawson (SR/Troy, AL) was selected to the NAIA All-America second team earlier today. Lawson graduated from Central Baptist College in May.
"Jalin is probably the purest power hitter I've ever coached," said head baseball coach Dr. Aaron Brister. He has an unbelievable eye for the ball."
Lawson paced the Mustangs with 11 home runs, 50 RBI's and a .392 batting average, all of which were top-five in the American Midwest Conference. He joined Andrew Warner of Columbia College, a first-team selection, as the only players from the AMC that were All-Americans.
