Parker French Named Big 12 Freshman of the Year

via www.dailytexanonline.com

Despite an elbow stress fracture sidelining him in early May, Parker French was named Big 12 Freshman of the Year today. French follows in the footsteps of sophomore Erich Weiss who won the award this year and was named to the All-Big 12 First Team today. French finished the year 6-2 with a 2.84 ERA in 21 appearances (9 starts) and was rounding into the team's best starter when he got hurt making his first Friday night start against Missouri.

In addition to Weiss, Corey Knebel made First Team, Jonathan Felts, Hoby Milner and Mark Payton were All-Big 12 Second Team and French, Jonathan Walsh and Jordan Etier were Honorable Mention. That Felts, Knebel, Weiss and Payton are all sophomores bodes extremely well for Texas baseball in 2013 and we wish them all a hearty congratulations.
