Sweatt also came up big at the plate as a senior, connecting on 11 doubles.

The Bulldog infield of Thomason at first base, Corey Armstrong at second, Dean at shortstop and Justin Abdo at third base was rock solid as well.

Dean, who has signed a baseball scholarship with Louisiana State, batted in the leadoff spot most of the season. Armstrong, a freshman, was steady in the field, at the plate and, when called upon, on the mound.

Austin Armstrong, a junior, was a steady presence behind the plate for the Bulldogs. His strong arm kept base runners honest and his timely hitting was apparent time and time again.

Dean, Champion, Donofro and Thomason have all signed baseball scholarships. Champion and Donofro will play for Jefferson Davis Community College in Brewton, Ala. Thomason is heading to Alabama Southern Community College.

Hendersonsigned a Florida Atlantic University football scholarship, where he expects to also play baseball. Likewise, Rebholz signed a United States Coast Guard Academy football scholarship, and could play baseball there.

Sweatt also hopes to sign with someone in the near future.
