Arkansas Razorbacks relief pitcher Kevin Kopps was named winner of the 43rd Golden Spikes Award. It’s given annually to the best college baseball player in the country.
During an interview with ESPN, Kopps attributed his achievement to God, along with those who have consistently stood by him.
“It feels surreal,” Kopps said about the award he received Thursday. “I think it’s an incredible blessing by God. I couldn’t have been here without Him, my parents, coaches, teammates. But honestly, I still feel like Kevin. I don’t feel any different.”
The award is presented by USA Baseball and recognizes an athlete’s integrity, character, and overall sportsmanship.
