JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State outfielder Hunter Renfroe was awarded the C Spire Ferriss Trophy on Monday afternoon at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame.

The award is given to Mississippi's top college baseball player and voted on by a panel of professional scouts, college coaches and a media member. The 6-foot-1, 216-pound Renfroe leads the Bulldogs with a .362 batting average, 15 homers, 51 RBIs and nine stolen bases.

Mississippi State has a 40-16 overall record (16-14 SEC) and will be the No. 5 seed in this week's Southeastern Conference tournament, which begins on Tuesday in Hoover, Ala.

The other four finalists for the Ferriss Trophy were Delta State pitcher Josh Branstetter, Southern Mississippi pitcher Andrew Pierce, Mississippi catcher Stuart Turner and Mississippi pitcher Bobby Wahl.
