The 2016 All-SEC baseball squad is filled with Mississippi players.

The crew is led by SEC Freshman of the Year Jake Mangum from Mississippi State. Mangum hit a blistering .427 on the season and had a legitimate case for SEC Player of the Year, but that award eventually went to Texas A&M’s Boomer White. Mangum also took home the Ferris Trophy, which is awarded to the top college baseball player in Mississippi.

SEC Coach of the Year went to John Cohen, who coached the Bulldogs to an SEC Championship.

Mississippi State also had four All-SEC players on the first team: 1B Nathaniel Lowe, OF Jake Mangum, DH/UT Jack Kruger, and Pitcher Dakota Hudson.

Their in-state rivals Ole Miss has two All-SEC players on the first team: C Henri Lartigue and OF J.B. Woodman. Woodman was also named to the All-SEC Defensive Team.

Each Mississippi squad had one player on the All-SEC second team as well: Ole Miss 2B Tate Blackman and MSU DH/UT Brent Rooker.

The Volunteer State was also well represented. Derek Lance from Tennessee was named the SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, finishing the school year with a 3.90 GPA. Volunteer 3B Nick Senzel was also named to the All-SEC Second Team and All-SEC Defensive Team.
