Hendrix College senior baseball player Collin Radack has been named the Southern Athletic Association Man of the Year, the league’s highest award for a male student-athlete.
Radack, from Austin, Texas, has excelled on and off the field during his tenure as a Warrior. He was a four-time first team all-conference selection as an outfielder, culminating with the SAA Player of the Year award this spring. He also earned All-West Region Third Team honors as a junior and was a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree.
Radack holds the Hendrix career records in games played and started, at bats, runs (163), hits (25), triples (13), stolen bases (81) and fielding percentage (.992).
He will graduate with distinction with a degree in Economics and Business with a 3.76 grade-point average.
Radack leads in the community in a variety of ways, including his three-year involvement with the Soaring Wings Marathon in which proceeds go directly to the Soaring Wings Ranch to help children who have been abused, abandoned or neglected. Additionally, Radack has attended a mission trip to Nicaragua, has volunteered at Vacation Bible School in Ohio and lent his time assisting in tornado relief clean-up efforts in Faulkner County.
"Collin is the epitome of what a student-athlete should be and has been an excellent representative of Hendrix College over his career," said Hendrix Director of Athletics Amy Weaver. "He is an outstanding young man who works extremely hard, both in the classroom and on the baseball field. In addition, his faith is very important to him and he has used that as a vehicle to assist others in need. Collin is a man of great character, integrity and humility and displays these qualities in all aspects of his life."
