Scott Named Lowe's All-American

MANHATTAN, Kan. Departed senior second baseman Brett Scott, who was one of 10 finalists for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, has been named a First Team All-Senior All-American, the organization announced.


Scott, who recently completed his career at K-State, has been named an academic all-American the past two years after obtaining his degree in Finance with a 3.98 GPA in 2007. The Manhattan, Kan., native finished his career with a .264 batting average including a .268 clip in 2008 as he helped lead the Wildcats to their second-consecutive Big 12 Championship and the school’s first appearance in the title game. Scott, who led the 2008 squad with a .408 on-base percentage, also finished his career with 23 sacrifice bunts to capture the school record.


The Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award named its All-Senior All-America Team based on voting results of the finalists. Scott was joined on the first team by award winner Cole St.Clair (Rice), Josh Meents (Air Force), Charlie Mellies (Wake Forest) and Rob Musgrave (Wichita State). The second team consisted of Eitan Barbalat (Bradley), Jason Buursma (Bucknell), Jarod Freeman (Oklahoma), Ryan Hastings (Illinois) and Tyler Stovall (Central Michigan).


“The Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award is a prestigious award within collegiate athletics because it focuses on the total student-athlete,” said Bob Gfeller, senior vice president of marketing and advertising at Lowe’s. “Nationwide, talented athletes compete every day, but Lowe's believes those individuals who are equally dedicated in the classroom and in their communities make the real difference with their abilities.”
