TUSCON, Ariz. - Middle Tennessee senior Trent Miller was named third team Louisville Slugger All-American, as announced by the Collegiate Baseball newspaper on Thursday.

The Kansas City native finished his senior year with a team-best .339 batting average in 58 games. His 25 doubles led Conference USA and ranked third nationally. The first baseman finished 2014 with a league-leading 120 total bases, while sitting second in C-USA with 78 hits and third with 45 RBI.

Miller set the school career record with his 67 doubles. The senior posted a .522 slugging percentage, recording five homers in the season. He completed his collegiate career in the top-10 in putouts (1,008 - 6th), RBIs (155 - 7th) and hits (243 - 10th).

"Trent is very deserving of this honor," said MT head coach Jim McGuire. "He was very consistent offensively and helped our program immensely during the course of the season. I am very proud of Trent's accomplishment."

Last week, Miller was selected first team All-Conference USA by the league's coaches, media and sports information directors. Miller is the first Louisville Slugger All-American since Bryce Brentz in 2009 and the eighth Blue Raider selected for this prestigious award in program history.
