Johnson is hitting .340 with 11 home runs and 51 RBI this season. English is hitting .309 with three home runs and 31 RBI in just his freshman season.

Brandon Gold was Tech's most reliable weekend starter this season, going 7-3 with a 2.55 ERA in 14 starts. And on the back end, closer Matthew Gorst finished the year with a 0.49 ERA and 11 saves.

Connor Justus, a.k.a. #BigPlayCJ, was a force for the Yellow Jackets this season. Justus hit .340 with 14 doubles, three triples, six home runs, and 36 RBI.
