OVERLAND PARK, Kansas (ECU) – ECU senior infielder Brady Lloyd has been named among 30 candidates vying for the 2019 Senior CLASS Award in college baseball the organization announced Friday.

To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition.

Lloyd, who sports a 3.71 cumulative GPA in health fitness, is a two-time American Athletic Conference All-Academic Team selection and a five-time ECU Directors of Athletics Honor Roll member.

An active member in the community, Lloyd has helped the Pirates devote over 3,000 hours working with various programs in the Pitt County area as the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, Team IMPACT, Riley’s Army, Cypress Glenn Retirement Community Flood Relief, Red Cross, First Born Community Development Center, ACES for Autism, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Jackie Robinson League, Hurricane Relief, Pirate Trash Pickup, Local Fellow Christian Athlete (FCA) programs and the James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital.

On the year, Lloyd has started all 21 games at second base where he is batting .262 (17-for-65) with nine RBI and 10 runs scored. In all, he has reached base 32 times (17 hits, nine walks, six hit by pitches) and has stolen five, which is tied with Turner Brown for the team lead. The Mifflinburg, Pa. native has tallied a team-best three game-winning RBI with two coming in a series sweep over Marist.

During his four-year career with the Pirates, Lloyd is batting .304 (99-for-326) with two home runs, 14 doubles, 38 RBI and has scored 66 runs. He has drawn 29 career walks, been hit by a pitch 15 times and has swiped 25 of 30 bases. As a junior, he earned First-Team All-American Athletic Conference honors and as one of seven Pirates to start 50-plus games.

The 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the regular season, and those 10 names will be placed on the official ballot. Ballots will be distributed through a nationwide voting system to media, coaches and fans, who will select one candidate who best exemplifies excellence in the four C’s of community, classroom, character and competition. The Senior CLASS Award winner will be announced during the 2019 College World Series in June.
