USC’s Roth, Tigers’ Pohl up for 2012 Senior Class Award

South Carolina left-handed pitcher Michael Roth and Clemson utility player Phil Pohl were among 30 seniors to be named as candidates for the 2012 Lowe’s Senior Class Award on Thursday.

To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.

Roth is in his second straight year as captain for the baseball team. He is a Preseason All-America selection and was a 2011 consensus All-American and CollegeBaseballInsider.com’s National Player of the Year.

Last year, Roth was named to the College World Series All-Tournament Team and was a first-team CoSIDA Academic All-American as well. He also earned the NCAA Elite 88 award as the student-athlete with the highest GPA of all student-athletes in the 2011 College World Series.

Pohl is the Tigers’ do-it-all on the field, playing catcher, first base and outfield for Clemson, and know-it-all in the class room as a Dean’s List regular. He is hitting a team-best .400 with a homer, double, and four RBIs this season.

Lowe’s, an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA, will announce the Senior CLASS Award® winner during the 2012 NCAA College World Series, which will be held June 15-26 in Omaha.

The 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the regular season, and those 10 names will be placed on the official ballot. Ballots will be distributed through a nationwide voting system to media, Division I head coaches and fans who will select one finalist who best exemplifies excellence in the four Cs of community, classroom, character and competition.
