The Griffin native left his mark on the CSU single-season record book ranking fourth in RBIs, tied for eighth in doubles and tied for ninth in batting average. 

The Tino Martinez Award is named after former Tampa and Major League Player Tino Martinez. Initial nominations for the award were made by Sports Information Directors and media members. A panel of media members and coaches will be polled to finalize the candidates which will be announced on Monday, May 20.
