Whitson Selected as Freshman All-American
Three of the right-handers best starts this season have come in the postseason. He allowed just two runs in 5.2 innings against Georgia in the SEC Tournament. To open the NCAA Tournament against Manhattan, Whitson went 3.1 shutout innings, allowing two hits. Florida head coach Kevin O'Sullivan pulled Whitson after 47 pitches to keep him available if the Gators needed him later in the Regional, which they wouldn't.
Whitson threw game two of the Super Regional against Mississippi State. He threw six scoreless innings before allowing two runs in the seventh. He ended the game allowing two runs in 6.1 innings, giving up four hits and recording six strikeouts. He didn't factor in the decision, as the Gators lost on a walk-off home run before winning Sunday's game to advance to the College World Series.
In conference games, Whitson went 4-0 with a 2.56 ERA. The four wins came over Tennessee, Alabama, Ole Miss and Kentucky.
Whitson was joined on the First Team by Arkansas first baseman Dominic Ficociello. LSU second baseman JaCoby Jones, Arkansas reliever Barrett Astin and Vanderbilt pitchers TJ Pecoraco and Kevin Ziomek were named to the Second Team.
