BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU rightfielder Dylan Crews and first baseman Tre’ Morgan have been named 2021 Freshmen All-Americans by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

Both players were also named Freshmen All-Americans last week by Collegiate Baseball newspaper.

Crews helped lead LSU to the NCAA Eugene Regional title, batting .476 (10-for-21) with two doubles, one triple, three home runs, four RBI and six runs scored. He was voted to the regional all-tournament team.
