Lyerly 2nd-team AA in Collegiate Baseball

Charlotte 49ers junior Rob Lyerly was selected to the preseason Louisville Slugger Collegiate Baseball second-team All-America squad, the publication announced.

Lyerly has also been named to the Wallace Watch List - which includes players that could vie for the nation's top collegiate baseball player honor in conjunction with the College Baseball Hall of Fame ceremonies in Texas.

Last season, Lyerly led the 49ers with 26 doubles and 76 RBI while batting .364 and slugging .705. A former standout at Piedmont High in Union County, Lyerly transferred to Charlotte after one season at Campbell.

Lyerly, a junior this season, set or tied four school records last season with a 6-for-6, three home run, 19 total bases performance in an April 19 game at Massachusetts.
