OMAHA, Neb. >> Florida pitcher Brady Singer has been honored with the Dick Howser Trophy as college baseball’s player of the year.

Singer, who received the award today, carries a 12-1 record and 2.30 ERA into the College World Series. The native of Eustis, Florida, was the No. 18 overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft by the Kansas City Royals.

Singer is the second Florida player to win the award, following Mike Zunino in 2012.

The Dick Howser Trophy is given in memory of the former Florida State All-America shortstop and major league player and manager who died of cancer in 1987. The winner is determined by a vote of National College Baseball Writers Association members and presented by the College Baseball Foundation.
