Mississippi State freshman outfielder Jake Mangum has been named the recipient of the 2016 C Spire Ferriss Trophy, presented annually to the top collegiate baseball player in Mississippi. The Pearl native becomes the first freshman to take home the award in its 12-year history.
Ferriss Trophy finalist J.B. Woodman hit his conference-leading 13th home run of the season as part of a two-hit, two-RBI night, but it was not enough as No. 6 Ole Miss fell on the road to Arkansas State, 8-5, Tuesday. The Red Wolves (25-26) tallied 17 hits to hand the Rebels (39-14) just their four non-conference loss of the 2016 season.
