A pair of Golden Eagles were named to the Preseason All-Conference USA Team Wednesday. Brian Dozier and Trey Sutton represent two of the five infielders honored.
Dozier, who has been the USM starting shortstop since arriving in Hattiesburg, hit .339 last season. The junior added four homeruns and drove in 28 runs.
Sutton, a senior, led the team with a .368 batting average in 2007. He knocked out 8 homeruns and had 38 RBIs.
The Golden Eagles were picked to finish third in the conference behind Rice and East Carolina by the league's coaches.
