Dorris excels in bullpen, classroom for A&M - CC

— Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Press release

CORPUS CHRISTI – Four members of the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi baseball team have been named to the Southland Conference All-Academic Teams, the league announced today. Seniors Stafford Brantley and Brad Porras and sophomore Jacob Dorris were named to the First Team, while sophomore Jordan Lee was a Second Team honoree.

“I’m really proud of these guys,” head coach Scott Malone said. “They work so hard on the field and achieve so much off of it as well. Being a student-athlete is incredibly challenging with all the time demands, but these four are outstanding examples of doing things the way we want guys in our program to do them.”

The Islanders were joined by Lamar as the only two teams with four players honored. All four Islanders garnered the honor in their first year of eligibility for the award, as all four were in their second years academically at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Brantley was an automatic selection after garnering Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-District 7 First Team honors, while Porras earned automatic selection for being a First Team All-Southland Conference selection and having a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Brantley (College Station) carried a 3.87 GPA in health sciences into the spring semester, and capped off his college career by posting a perfect 4.0 during the spring. On the field, he played in 51 games with a .252 average on the season. In conference play, he upped his average to .290, and drove in eight of his 10 runs in league action. In his final game for the Islanders, he went 3-for-4 and drove in the only run of a loss to Central Arkansas in the Southland Tournament.

Porras (Needville) earns a nod to the All-Academic Team after posting a 3.0 GPA in Finance at the Island University. He earned First Team All-Southland honors after hitting .314 and leading the Islanders with his 17 doubles on the season. The first baseman finished tied for the team lead with 72 hits on the season, and added three home runs and 32 RBI on the year. He had five games with three hits or more, and finished his career on a 13-game hitting streak.
