DALLAS - After setting a school record with 10 RBI in a single game and batting a blistering .591 in six games last week, Florida Southern College sophomore Jacob Teter has been named as the NCBWA Division II National Hitter of the Week, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association announced on Wednesday afternoon. The reigning Sunshine State Conference Player of the Week, Teter helped lead the Moccasins to a 5-1 record last week and torched opponent pitching.
The sophomore was 13-for-22 from the plate with 17 runs batted in, nine runs scored, five home runs, and five walks last week. The Melbourne native's top game of the week came in the finale against Felician where he went 4-for-4 with a school-record 10 RBI and hit two home runs. The first baseman slashed .591/.667/1.273, tallied 28 total bases, and reached base safely in all six games on the week.
Teter is the first Moccasin to earn NCBWA Hitter of the Week honors since Keith Curcio on April 30, 2014. He has reached base safely in all 21 games this season and is in the midst of an 11-game hitting streak. The Moccasins, who have now won six straight games, will head back into SSC action this weekend with a three-game series at Eckerd (March 15-16).
