Jan. 31, 2012
WICHITA, Kan. - The preseason honors keep accumulating for Oregon State junior closer Tony Bryant who was named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Stopper of the Year Watch List on Tuesday.
Bryant is one of 45 players named to the watch list but only two hail from the Pac-12 Conference - Utah's Tyler Wagner is the other pitcher named.
It is the fourth preseason honor for the year for Bryant, who led the then-Pac-10 with 12 saves a season ago.
He's a preseason All-American honoree by the NCBWA, Louisville Slugger/Collegiate Baseball and Perfect Game.
Bryant, a junior from Kennewick, Wash., was named as a first-team all-leaguer in 2011. He posted an earned run average of 1.52, the fifth-best single-season mark in Oregon State history.
