From Ole Miss Sports:
OXFORD, Miss. - Junior outfielder Alex Presley has been named the National Player of the Week by RosenblattReport.com after going 7-for-10 with nine RBI against Saint Louis over the weekend to help push the Rebels to a 2-0 start to the 2006 season.Go Rebels! Samford is doing their rain dances right now.
Presley, who was a Freshman All-America two years ago, picked up where he left off in 2005 as he pounded the Saint Louis pitching staff in Friday's doubleheader. The third game with the Billikens was canceled due to inclement weather.
Presley was 2-for-5 in the first game with the Billikens, hitting the first home run of the season for the Rebels with a two-run shot that went 347-feet over the right field fence. Presley then went 5-for-5 in the second game including a pair of triples and six RBI. Presley nailed a three RBI, bases loaded triple in the third inning to rally and give the Rebels the first lead of the game as Ole Miss had been down 2-0.
The Rebels will take to the field again on Tuesday, when Ole Miss will host Samford in the first game of a two-game series beginning at 3 p.m.
