Three Mississippi State players are among the five finalists for the C Spire Ferriss Trophy, which is presented annually to the top college baseball player in Mississippi.
Junior pitcher Dakota Hudson, junior outfielder/pitcher Reid Humphreys and freshman outfielder Jake Mangum will represent the Bulldogs while Ole Miss outfielder J.B. Woodman and Delta State outfielder/pitcher Will Robertson are the other two finalists.
Finalists were selected by scouts who cover the Magnolia State and Mississippi’s college coaches. The winner will be announced May 23 at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum in Jackson.
Former Southern Miss pitcher James McMahon claimed the Ferriss Trophy last year.
