Illinois’ Lars Davis named Big Ten Player of the Year

Sitting in my hotel room in Ypsilanti, I just had this come across the ticker. Lars Davis has become the second player to be awarded the Big Ten Player of the Year award in three years. Drew Davidson won it in 2005.

Davis certainly has the qualifications. He led the conference in homeruns (13), slugging (.673), and total bases (144) and was second in batting (.415), hits (89), and rbis (56).

What you don’t see on paper is that Davis is leader on the field, a good defensive catcher, agile behind the plate… ok, I could go on for a while.

Congrats, Lars!
