Dylan Moore Tabbed as Sun Belt Top Male Postgraduate Award Winner
Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns senior relief pitcher Dylan Moore has garnered plenty of awards on and off the field in his career and now he can add one more to the resume.
On Wednesday, Moore was tabbed as the Top Male Postgraduate Award Winner of the Sun Belt Conference, the league announced.
With being honored as the Top Male Postgraduate Award Winner, he will receive a $6,500 scholarship sent to postgraduate school. These scholarships are awarded to specially selected student-athletes who have committed to pursuing a graduate degree following the completion of their undergraduate requirements. Those who have been honored have not only performed at a high level in the classroom but in their respective sport as well. Moore is attending the University of Texas for Law school in his postgrad ventures this coming fall.
Cajuns Head Coach Tony Robicheaux said,
"It's always an honor to be selected by the conference for both your athletic and academic accomplishments, Dylan was selected at the top of a great group of student-athletes from our conference, and that says a lot about what kind of person he is. He worked tirelessly both on the field and in the classroom, and this award pays him back for his hard work and effort. This scholarship will certainly help him as he continues his academic mission. We wish him the best of luck in law school."
Dylan Moore competed for four seasons with the Ragin' Cajuns Baseball team and he claimed both the Sun Belt and UL career saves record with 38. He was a 2016 All-American selection, Moore also has the Ragin' Cajuns single season record for saves with 14. In addition, he was included on the All-Sun Belt baseball teams in both 2015 and 2016 as well as finishing his career with a 15-8 record and a 2.53 ERA in 167 innings pitched.
He's much more than just a baseball player, born and raised in Hughes Springs, Texas. Moore was an exceptional student as he became the first player in program history to be named to multiple Academic All-American teams. He was tabbed three years straight to the CoSIDA Academic All-America teams and that included a first team nod in 2016. Moore dominated the classroom with a sparkling 4.0 GPA while graduating summa cum laude this spring from the University of Louisiana.
