STATESBORO, Ga. (WTOC) - Georgia Southern’s Noah Ledford is the latest Eagle to be named to the Collegiate Baseball News Freshman All-American team.

Ledford started 49 games and played in all but three in 2019. He finished the season with a .291 batting average and .10 slugging percentage.
He is the eighth Georgia Southern player to earn Freshman All-American honors under head coach Rodney Hennon, and the first since Seth Shuman did so in 2017.
