HOOVER, Ala. – University of Tennessee outfielder Andrew Toles has been named to the Southeastern Conference All-Freshman Team, the league office announced Tuesday morning.

A first-year Volunteer from Fayetteville, Ga., Toles made an immediate impact at UT. The Opening Day centerfielder for the Big Orange, he started 50 contests during his rookie campaign, hitting .270 with 11doubles, a team-high three triples, one home run and 25 RBIs. He also finished fourth in the SEC with 21 stolen bases, the third-most ever by a Tennessee freshman.

A fourth-round pick by the Florida Marlins in last year’s MLB Draft, Toles posted 19 multi-hit contests in his first season at Rocky Top, tying him for second on the squad. He also tallied seven multiple-RBI games and hit safely in 35 of the 51 games in which he played.

Toles’ award marks the seventh straight season that Tennessee has had at least one player on the SEC All-Freshman Team. The Vol trio of James Adkins, J.P. Arencibia and Julio Borbon started the trend in 2005, with Tony Delmonico continuing it the following season. Yan Gomes and Jeff Lockwood both earned the honors in 2007 and Kentrail Davis and P.J. Polk followed suit in 2008. Current junior Zach Osborne made it five consecutive seasons in 2009 before Chris Fritts earned the honors last year.
