MACON -- The Herald took notice of former Deerfield star Evan Boyd last season, naming him the 2009 Ray Knight Player of the Year. Now a freshman at Mercer, it appears others are taking notice as well.

Boyd was named to the Brooks Wallace Shortstop Watch List on Friday. The Wallace Award recognizes the nation's top shortstop and will be presented on July 2 in Lubbock, Texas

Boyd currently has a .351 batting average and a .473 slugging percentage with a .455 on base percentage. This season, the freshman has started in all 21 games for the Bears.
