Evans, Mills-Derouen named All-MACJC First Team

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast's Tyler Evans and Dylan Mills-Derouen have been named to the All-MACJC First Team, as selected by the conference coaches.

 

The Bulldogs' Mason Sullivan, Champ Davison and Logan McGrew were named to the All-State Second Team.

 

Evans, a sophomore first baseman from D'Iberville, batted .380 with six home runs and 42 RBI. Those all were team-bests, and he had hits in all 28 conference games.

 

"His numbers speak for themselves," Gulf Coast coach Rodney Batts said. "He hit .402 in conference, had a 32-game hit streak, led us in just about every offensive category. He was probably the biggest part of our offense all year."

 

Mills-Derouen, a sophomore left-hander from Biloxi, went 10-3 with a 2.65 ERA. He struck out 79 batters in 68 innings, walking 33.

 

"Dylan threw as well as anybody in our league in conference. He was 7-1," Batts said. "The biggest difference from last year was his walks. He didn't walk as many people. Dylan's a guy who's got three pitches that are really good in this league or any league."

 

Sullivan, a sophomore right-handed reliever from Harrison Central, was 3-1 with a 1.47 ERA and converted all six save opportunities.

 

Davison, a sophomore infielder from Pascagoula, batted .374 with 17 RBI. He had a .456 on-base percentage with nine doubles and a triple.

 

McGrew, a freshman designated hitter/catcher, hit .358 with two home runs. He drove in 30 runs and had four three-hit games.
