Crews, a product of Longwood, Fla., was named by USA Baseball earlier this season to the 2022 Golden Spikes Award Midseason Watch List, and he was voted last month to the 2022 SEC Baseball Community Service Team for his dedicated philanthropic work with special needs children.

Berry, a product of Queen Creek, Ariz., is hitting a team-high .381 (72-for-189) on the year, including a league-best .400 in SEC games. The 2022 Second-Team All-SEC performer has collected eight doubles, 15 homers, 47 RBI and 43 runs scored this season.
