If you haven't seen the stats or seen the team play yet, freshman 2B/SS Riley Henricks is leading the team in nearly every offensive category and looks like he's going to be a really good player for a long time. He's definitely a candidate for WCC Freshman of the Year, and apparantly UP was the only school to offer him a scholarship. Gotta love that! Here is a little bit from the article:
When no other NCAA Division I coach would recruit Henricks, University of Portland coach Chris Sperry offered him a scholarship.
"He's just a good baseball player," Sperry said. "He's a guy you want coming to the plate when you need a run driven in."
Now, nearly one year out of high school, Henricks is proving himself to be a certifiable Division I player, batting leadoff and pacing the Pilots in batting average (.347), hits (52), doubles (13), triples (3), slugging percentage (.593), on-base percentage (.431), walks (21) and total bases (89). In addition, he's second on the team with six home runs.
