College All American: Gordon Beckham

I am going to be posting a couple of these today. Let's start with current White Sox infielder Gordon Beckham.

In 2008, as a Junior at the University of Georgia he was the only unanimous selection to the All-SEC First Team and was selected as the SEC Player of the Year. He hit a ridiculous .411 with an eye-popping OPS of 1323. He led the NCAA in home runs that year while setting his school's single season home run record (26). He finished college with 53 home runs, the most ever by a Bulldog player. His team lost in the finals of the "all bulldog" College World Series to a cinderella story Fresno State team.

He was the 8th overall pick in the 2008 MLB draft.
