STATESBORO, Ga. - Georgia Southern Eagle slugger Victor Roache garnered First Team Preseason All-American honors by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association after leading the NCAA in home runs with 30 a year ago. The junior outfielder was tabbed earlier in the preseason as one of the top-10 draft prospects by MLB.com.
Roache hit .326 with 84 RBIs to go along with his 30 dingers. Joining the Ypsilanti, Mich., native on the preseason All-America list from the Southern Conference was Daniel Aldrich from the College of Charleston.
