BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - As LSU baseball continues its search for the next head coach to lead one of the most prominent programs in the country, the Tigers will have plenty to work with next season as two freshmen were recently named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Freshman All-Americans.

The dynamic duo of right fielder Dylan Crews and first baseman Tre’ Morgan was a key part in helping the Tigers win an NCAA Regional Championship and reach a Super Regional this season after LSU started 1-8 in SEC play.

Both Crews and Morgan were named Freshman All-Americans by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper last week.
