Matt Harris, Miller Share BCC Student-Athlete of Week Honors
April 15, 2013 - Baseball first baseman Matt Harris and pitcher Aaron Miller are the Brevard Community College Student-Athletes of the Week for the week ending April 14.
Harris, a sophomore from Melbourne, FL and Melbourne High, was an offensive force for the Titans in two victories.
Miller, a sophomore right-hander from Orlando, FL and Colonial High, pitched seven innings of one-hit baseball in a 4-3 victory over Indian River State College on April 9. The triumph qualified the Titans for the Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference tournament for the first time in years.
"Aaron has been a steady force in the rotation," BCC head coach Jeff Tam said. "He is throwing the ball as well as anyone right now. He pitched a great game against Indian River."
Harris hit the game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning in the Indian River State game. He then went 3-for-5 with a double, triple and three runs batted in during a 6-2 victory over conference first-place Miami Dade College on April 12.
"Matt has always been an asset to our lineup," Tam said. "He never lets a situation, no matter how important, influence his at bat in a negative way.
"We look for him to continue this approach this week and into the conference tournament."
