Best College Athlete - 2011
Brandon Rogalski - Washington University
Unless you follow Division III college baseball, you've probably never heard of Brandon Rogalski. Let this be your introduction: Brandon Rogalski might be the most dominating college baseball player in the nation. Proof? Just check out his trophy rack: He has won first team All-America honors from the American Baseball Coaches Association, the University Athletic Association and D3Baseball.com, as well as Central Region Player of the Year honors from the ABCA and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. That's what happens when you bat .438, slug .772 and set two single-season school records with 74 hits and 60 RBIs, all while leading the Bears to a 29-17 record and the No. 6 spot on the NCAA Central Region rankings. The biology major was also second-team Academic All-District VII. But the best may be yet to come: That was his junior year.
