Poythress Named All-American

Georgia junior first baseman Rich Poythress has been named to the Louisville Slugger TPX All-America Second Team, it was announced by Collegiate Baseball.

Poythress finished the season with a .376 average, 25 home runs and a single season school record 86 RBI. He became the first player in Georgia history to have two 70-RBI seasons and is the second player in program history to have two three-home run games after launching three homers in the Bulldogs 24-8 win over Ohio State in the Tallahassee Regional.

The Grovetown, Ga., native is second on Georgia's career RBI list with 185 and fifth on the career home runs list with 43. He helped guide the Bulldogs to a 38-24 record in 2009 and the program's first in-season No.1 ranking.

Poythress was named first team All-SEC and a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Trophy and the Golden Spikes Award. He was also named to the SEC's All-Defensive Team.

Poythress is the 18th All-American in Georgia baseball history.
